Steins Deli, New Orleans
The Good :
The Rueben, and most of what I’ve had, is served hot a delicious. A really amazing sandwich that will fill you up! Cool communal tables so you get to meet someone new. (If you like that sort of thing…) Fast service for the number of people at any given time.
The Bad :
The Fernando is a grilled sandwich but the inside meats don’t get hot so your stuck with a half hot – half cold sandwich. The potato salad is a little tart for me and lacks flavor. If you don’t like communal tables you need to get it to go. I don’t like communal tables and thats it for seating options.
A jewish deli sneaked away in the Magazine Street district of Nola (think Magazine and Washington), serving hot, cold and delicious sandwiches. They provide the wifi that District Donuts doesn’t…
Today my friend and I have settled on the Hot Corned Been Reuben and the Fernando. The Fernando is a pesto and prosciutto sandwich.
Stein’s deli features communal tables so if you want to sit alone and be to yourself I would avoid this spot. Even on off hours it’s pretty popping’. They also feature an extensive drink selection, a coffee bar and a large beer selection if you work your way to the back of the store. The front shelves feature a collection of high-end take-homes like pastas, sauces and cookies.
The atmosphere Is cool and gives you a false sense of New York..thinking it’s packed and busy like a New York deli would be accurate…thinking that any New York deli would have this much open space and head room would be a mistake. It’s been there for 12 years according to their Facebook page update person.
The food is generally on point and today we expect to find out the same. Check out the video to see our total experience. The food, the atmosphere and the rest of the caboodle.
