Since 2010, Mile End Deli has been serving up Montreal-style deli meats and bagels, first just in Boerum Hill, and then expanding to Lower Manhattan, after New Yorkers got over their skepticism about what they might expect to find at a Canadian deli. Starting today, Midtown workers and dwellers will be able to experience the tasty combo of the deli's smoked salmon on its sister company's Black Seed Bagels, as Mile End is the newest tenant at Urbanspace Vanderbilt, the food hall just around the corner from Grand Central Terminal.
The modified menu will offer Mile End classics like smoked-meat sandwiches, Black Seed Bagel breakfast sandwiches (as well as a $5 "bodega special" egg and cheese on a roll), and poutine aplenty. Other menu items include hot dogs on potato rolls, reubens, and fries with smoked meat.
This outpost of Mile End will also be serving Canadian corn dogs, which you can't currently get at the Boerum Hill or NoHo locations. Dipped in corn batter and deep fried, the sausages will go for $5 each, or $9 for two.
Mile End at Urbanspace will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays. And note that to celebrate the new location, they'll be offering bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches with a coffee for $5 through Labor Day, provided you come in before 9 a.m. on a weekday.
