Following the tradition of the great sandwich makers like; Reuben Kulakofsky, the Earl of Sandwich, or Joey from Friends, the New York Sandwich Co. strives to honor these legends of culinary delights by creating high-quality works of art in the form of breads, meats and cheeses.
The New York sandwich tradition emerged in the mid 1800's with the opening of Kosher Deli's all across the city. By the early 1930's more than 1500 deli style restaurants were scattered through the boroughs. Less than 15 remain today.
The sandwich can trace its roots to the early 18th century Europe and Jewish immigrants creating a variation of the Passover meal first noted by Hillel the Elder. Modern sandwich makers have brought back this ancient meal in the form of wraps and Gyros.
