Countdown to Carnegie Deli’s Demise

A reminder that as of today, there are just two months to go in the countdown to Carnegie Deli’s demise. If you’ve never tried it, now’s the time. If, like our food editor, you have cherished memories of Carnegie, relive them while you still can.

The legendary deli closes its doors forever on December 31.
