Any sandwich bar & deli with a line that goes out the door everyday must be worth a visit and my recent trip to Delancey & Co. on Goodge Street did not disappoint.
The New York-style deli founded by Daniel Moosah, is named after Delancey Street on the Lower East Side of New York. The street was formerly the home of Ratner’s, one of the city’s most famous Jewish restaurants for nearly a century.
Delancey & Co. pays homage to its old school inspiration, offering sandwiches featuring salt beef, smoked salmon, and smoked turkey, presented both on their own and in more elaborate ways such as the Reuben (salt beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese). The menu also has ‘carbless’ salad options and noodle soups. Food can be taken away or eaten on the premises.
I stopped by Delancey & Co. earlier this week for lunch with a couple of friends and shared the Bad Boy BBQ Brisket sandwich on rye bread, Mutha Clucka NYC chicken salad, Big Bird turkey salad and a chopped side salad. To wash it down, naturally, we thought the Prosecco (on tap!) would be appropriate! The food was excellent, especially the Bad Boy Beef Brisket sandwich, which was packed tight to each corner with tasty beef, and the Mutha Clucka salad, which for a mayonnaise fan such as myself was incredibly satisfying.
For dessert we choose two slices of the Salted Caramel NYC Cheesecake, one slice of Red Velvet NYC Cheesecake and a pot of chocolate with marshmallows. The Salted Caramel NYC Cheesecake was heavenly! I had seen the cake previously while I was ordering the sandwich and salads, and had mentally made a note to save space for it. Salted Caramel and NYC Cheesecake could not be better matched – they compliment one another in every way possible and I would happily go to Delancey & Co. for the dessert alone!
Delancey & Co. serves the type of food you eat with a smile on your face, it’s fast but it’s certainly not forgettable! With more central London branches in the pipeline – I’m looking forward to seeing them around town more.
