  1. Las Vegas has a lot of good restaurants, but Carnegie Deli isn't one of them. I kept thinking I must have hit an off day (plus I was staying at the Mirage), and returned for several disappointing meals. The corned beef, and the pastrami, were both dry and a little lacking in flavor. I also assume the meat is flown in from the east coast. Perhaps it is, but it must lose something either in storage or handling.

    Other disappointments: cheese blintzes that were bland; matzo brei that was downright bad. The only good things I found were a hot dog and some of their desserts.

    Here's a link to the Las Vegas branch's menu, with prices:

    1. If you come from a deli-deprived wilderness like I do, the Carnegie in Vegas will do just fine, but I have had better.

      1. Never been to the LV outpost but almost every report on Chowhound in the past has been negative. The new Chowhound software makes it easy to do a search on the Las Vegas Carnegie and exclude posts about the New York branch.
