NYC Stage Deli
Stage Deli was an iconic NManhattan establishment, located a couple of blocks from Carnegie Hall, which every New York foodie must have heard of and visited at least once. Although, you couldn’t have only visited the place once and not return. As one of New York’s finest and most famous delicatessens, it was frequented by celebrities.
The Stage Deli had a famous rivalry with another local deli, the Carnegie Deli, which opened in the same year. However, while Stage Deli closed in 2012, Carnegie Deli managed to survive until 2016. Despite being an iconic establishment in the city, the owners closed the doors of the deli in 2012, saying the rising rent and the downturn in business finally caught up to him.
