Nearly two years after it closed, the iconic Carnegie Deli is returning for a week, with 1950s prices. Why? Well, it's a promotion for Emmy-winning series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which is returning for a second season in December on Amazon Prime Video.
From December 1st through December 8th, the Carnegie Deli will have a pop-up a few miles from its original Midtown haunt. According to a press release, the deli will be located at 201 Lafayette Street, and "will transport visitors back to the era of the TV series, with everything from décor, to pricing, to the menu, reflecting 1950’s New York City" as depicted in the show.
The Prime Video folks says that in consultation with the owners of the Carnegie Deli, the "pop-up deli will serve original sandwiches named after the most beloved characters of the show, as well as cheesecake, and black and white cookies... and other fun keepsakes. The star of the food lineup will be 'The Midge'—'a sandwich worth the schlep!'—made with Carnegie pastrami, salami, coleslaw, and special sauce on rye bread."
You can make reservations for parties up to four here—currently they are sold out, however, you can stroll up to the take-out counter any time. The atavistic pop-up, which is open from 11 a.m. until 8:30 p.m., will also have vintage cars outside, as well as bicycle delivery boys.
All proceeds will go to the The Lower East Side Girls Club.
