Thanks to my dentist (when I recommend people to go, they give me gift cards to locally owned places), we had the chance to visit Manhattan Deli earlier this week. The deli is located on Ingersoll Ave at about 38th street.

I've heard a few people talk about the deli, what a great place it is to go for a quick lunch during the business day. I'm glad I had a chance to check it out. Parking can be tricky; there are just a couple of spots in front of the restaurant along Ingersoll, but since Black Cat Cafe went out of business, that parking lot was being used for Manhattan Deli as well.
I was nervous that there wouldn't be any veggie options, but I was wrong. There were a few veggie sandwiches, some egg sandwiches and cheese sandwiches.
When you walk into the deli, you walk up to the counter (you can see most of the sandwiches on display in the counter case, but I honestly didn't take time to do this) and order at the till. Each of the veggie sandwiches was $5 or less, can't beat that! We did indulge in a soda and chips to share, so our total bill was right around $15.
