I love delicatessen for the atmosphere and food they serve and was looking forward to trying Sarge's in Murray Hill. Opened since 1964, this place is the perfect example of a deli experience: lots of items on the menu, huge sandwiches and rude service. It is opened 24/7 and has this authentic feel that gives the restaurant some charm: diner like decor, Tiffany's lamps and celebrity photos on the wall.

The menu, with its more than 200 items can be overwhelming, but I was set to order some classics:

First, they brought us some cole slaw and pickles:

Pastrami Reuben as my main entree:

The egg cream was good but I would not be able to say more, my exposure to this drink being limited. The reuben was good, but definitely not the best I had (Katz's, 2nd avenue deli or Junior's have a better one). I had to eat it with a fork and knife because when I picked up the sandwich, it fell apart, as not enough toasted inside and completely soaked in the meat juice (you can call it fat). 

Jodi simply ordered a bagel with lots of cream cheese.

Our experience at Sarge's was ok: the food was decent and prices comparable to the other delis, but not as good. At least I can check it off my list...

Enjoy (I did)!
