Carmelo Anthony will likely bring fans to the Garden. His sandwich will almost definitely bring indigestion to Carnegie Deli customers.
In honor of the Knicks new forward, the famed midtown deli is unveiling a gut-busting sandwich named the Melo.
The sandwich is not for the faint of heart. It’s piled high with pastrami, corned beef, salami, bacon, lettuce, tomato and Russian dressing.
“We threw in bacon because he’s gonna bring the bacon back to New York,” said owner Sandy Levine. “And the salami - it’s a spicy meat - he’s going to spice up the team and spice up the fans.”
Even the Russian dressing has meaning. Levine finished off the $22 sandwich with a slather of the dressing as a playful jab at Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, who failed to snag the four-time All-Star.
