If you watched “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” you know that Midge loves herself a good old pastrami sandwich when she dines at her favorite Jewish deli, which is why the iconic Carnegie Deli is back for its second pop-up with Amazon. Ahead of the second season’s launch in December, the former Midtown deli (which closed in 2016 after 80 years) returned for an eight-day stint in a Nolita storefront. And now Prime Video has created a Carnegie Deli food truck so that New Yorkers “can enjoy the ‘sandwich worth the schlep’ without too much of a schlep.” From today until Wednesday the retro pink truck will be serving up two signature sandwiches, black-and-white cookies, and vintage sodas.
Before “Mrs. Maisel” fans get too excited–the food truck is not a lead-up to the third season, but rather a promotional event for NYC Upfronts week, when networks preview their upcoming seasons for advertisers and tons of media and television execs are in town. Guests will be able to buy the Midge Maisel sandwich (Carnegie Deli pastrami, salami, coleslaw, and Russian dressing on rye), the Susie Sandwich (turkey, coleslaw, and Russian dressing on rye), black-and-white cookies, and vintage sodas. No word on whether the sandwiches will be as monstrous as Carnegie Deli’s famous one-pound pastrami sandwiches.
The food truck will only be in service for three days. Today, it will be outside the location of the NBC Upfront, 1285 6th Avenue at 51st Street, from 9am to 1pm and then outside 55 Wall Street from 5pm to 7pm. Tomorrow, it will be at 10 East 37th Street from 10am to 12:30pm and at 1886 Broadway from 2:30 to 3:30pm. And finally, on Wednesday, you’ll be able to find the food truck at 429 7th Avenue from 8:30am to 12pm and at 911 7th Avenue from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. There will also be a live map to find the truck, as well as some delivery service. Find all the info and updates here >>
