Belly Delly Deli: Guide the Counter Guys to a Great Sandwich

May 19, 2008

Belly Delly Deli’s sandwich menu is great in concept but the counter guys seem to be lost when it comes to preparing them as they’re listed. You’re there for a good sandwich so in a friendly manner, guide the counter guys in the right direction (e.g. when they try to slip your cheese covered turkey into the microwave to melt it, ask them to toss it on the grill) and you’re guaranteed to get a stacked sandwich.

Take my American Club ($7.95). I added some bacon and Russian dressing to the Turkey, Roast Beef, lettuce, and tomato and after suggesting the griddle for all of the melting and bacon cooking, I was very pleased with the results. Read on to see the final product.



Belly Delly Deli: Decadent Sandwiches in Times Square 24 hours a day, but is it better than Lenny’s?

March 6, 2008

I used my Menu Pages method (detailed in a great Midtown Mexican food article) to take a break from Lenny’s the other night and it led me to Belly Delly Deli where I found the aptly named Crazy and Turkey, grilled Boar’s Head Honey Maple Turkey, with melted Swiss, grilled red onion, chopped tomato, and Russian dressing on a grilled garlic hero. I naturally added some lettuce and well done bacon because that’s how NYC Food Guy rolls.


Next time I’ll pass on the garlic hero (merely butter and garlic powder) but this sandwich, made fresh to order, was delicious. And if that’s not enough, this place is 24 hours (delivery ends at 7pm) and the other hot sandwiches sound awesome too. Located on Broadway between 49th and 50th, Belly Delly Deli is the first “we have it all” deli to actually impress me. But is it better than NYC sandwich juggernaut Lenny’s?
