One-on-One With ‘The ‘Melo’ Sandwich

Posted by Chris Sesno

As promised, I cruised over to the Carnegie Deli in midtown Manhattan to put my appetite, and stomach, to the test against “The ‘Melo” sandwich, a monstrosity of a creation featuring six pounds of corned beef, pastrami, salami, bacon and Russian dressing.

To prepare for my battle against the beast, I spoke with deli owner Sandy Levine to get inside the mind of the creator and hopefully put a plan of attack in place. I was undoubtedly the underdog, but I wasn’t going down without a fight.

    I’m disappointed you didn’t at least get to sandwich side two. Come on Sesno, we thought you were tough!!
