New York City is quite well known for its vast amount and rich variety of delicatessens but one would never know that it would expand into the center of Toronto. The New Yorker Deli is a restaurant located one block south of Bloor Street on Bay Street. It is right across from the Manulife Center, which contains an Indigo book store, Bay-Bloor Radio and a few blocks from Yorkville, which is an entertainment district that is filled with clothing shops, restaurants and other places of business.
When one enters the diner, with a mural of the Statue of Liberty and the old World Trade Center, you immediately see the fresh cold cuts and an old-styled feeling. Besides the decor, it also provides its customers the classic style New York-esque sandwich of Turkey Roast, Meatloaf, Classic Rueben and even the B.L.T., which is all made from scratch and starts at $5.95CAD.
However, if sandwiches are not your forte then they also have chicken fingers, hot dogs and fries, bagels, salads and old-fashioned hamburgers that begin from $4.95 all the way to $10.95. They also serve breakfast from open to close, seven days per week.
The menu itself is also covered with a mural of the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center.
On the walls are framed posters of photos from a lot of Woody Allen films and photos from the golden age of cinema but also images of some of the famous landmarks of New York City such as the Chrysler Tower.
But of course, if you’re not a fan of old movies or Woody Allen himself, posters of an old Pablo Picasso exhibit from the mid-20th century and a poster from the Andy Warhol Museum can be seen.
If you want breakfast, deli-famous sandwiches, salads, soups or hot dogs then a Torontonian or a visitor to the city should visit The New Yorker Deli.
