Gandolfo’s New York Deli opens at The Promenade at Chenal on Thursday, June 15. The restaurant will celebrate the opening by giving away a Gandolfo’s travel mug and refills of coffee for a year to the first 100 people to come, starting at 7 a.m. From 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday, all breakfast items will be half price. On Tuesday, June 20, the men and women in blue will eat for free; firefighters get to chow down gratis on Wednesday, June 21. Kids with their parents can eat for free on Thursday, June 22.
So what’s on the menu, you ask. A lot of cute names. Since this is a deli, you’ll find hero sandwiches like the Dagwood (a whole bunch of meats, cheese, onion, etc.), the Big Apple (cappicola with roast beef, pepper jack, feta, etc.), a Meatball Hero and more. The Knuckle Sandwich features pastrami, cheese and marinated mushrooms; the Rockefeller Reuben is corned beef or pastrami or tucker with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing. Bagels and breakfast sandwiches are served all day.
Gandolfo’s also caters. The deli is the first in the Gandolfo chain for Arkansas.
