Sarge's Earns Their Stripes
My friend visiting from LA did her research and stumbled across Sarge's Deli which is supposed to be the quintessential NYC Deli experience, but a lot less touristy/crowded than say Katz. We were not led astray. The waitress was excellent, but very...New York. No fuss, direct, she brought us our food, end of story.
The meal started with a bowl of their pickles and coleslaw. I'm not generally a big fan of coleslaw despite the fact that I love cabbage, but this batch I LOVED. The sauce was light and refreshing, I had several helpings.
We both got the Matzo ball soup and half sandwich. She opted for the corned beef, I went with the turkey pastrami. Boy they are generous with their meat! We both had to take over half of it off to make a manageable sandwich. We left extremely satisfied and full, loved the food and the atmosphere!
