westchester deli's

in my quest to find a really good deli in westchester, i have been using chicken cutlet sandwiches on a roll w/ mayo l&t as a yardstick. unfortunately, few places make a better than the next place. any ideas would be appreciated. the other reason is today i stopped at wolf's lane deli in pelham, and came away impressed. good size fairly well seasoned and a very good roll. anyone else been there and how are their other foods (must say it looked very good).

  1. Rocky's Deli in Millwood and A&S Millwood both have good chicken cutlets. Rocky's is basic while A&S offers some better bread choices

      +1 on A+S great Italian style deli
      I like the thornwood location best

    2. Dante's on Central Ave White Plains (near TJ Maxx) and Cosmo and Alex in Mamaroneck are well liked too.

      By the way, let me know if you find that sandwich with veal

      1. Buon Amici Deli in Scarsdale has terrific chicken cutlet panini's served several different ways and all really good. Try the 007 which is the chicken cutlet with mozzarella, bacon, bbq sauce and hot sauce truly amazing.

          shhhh. don't tell anyone about buon amici. or about giannone's, on the other side of the railroad tracks. both places are already overrun with scarsdale hs kids. i love dante's but the service is unimaginably slow. buon amici is equal quality, much faster service.

            Dante's at 10:45 a.m. (early lunch) is actually not that long a wait :)

          2. re: gbeats

            I love Buon Amici Deli. The owner, John, is a stickler for quality ingredients and it shows in his food. Can't rave about it enough.

              Rooster's on Gedney Way in White Plains
              Park Deli on Regent Street in Port Chester
              BTW, Deli Delicious on Rte. 119 in Greenburgh has closed :-(
              LOVE Dante's on Central Ave., worth the wait.

                DSD, what was the deal with deli delicious? There for years but for me such an odd location that I never stopped in...what did I miss out on?

                1. re: cubanat

                  you mean you never went to disco deli *L* although it hasn't been that in years. used to work just down the street from there and (mid 80's?) they always had disco music blasting - hence the name, at the time they used to make a really good italian combo, one of the "secrets" was some fried eggplant, it really does work on a good combo

                  1. re: rich51

                    Rich, I have had that on pizza and on an outrageously good fried eeg sandwich with potatoes & onions. It adds just the right amount of crisp oily goodness. Melt should add that on as a topping!

                2. re: Dim Sum Diva

                  Hi Dim Sum Diva,
                  I am the former owner of Wrappsody in White Plains. Someone had sent me a link to your comments a few years back about Wrappsody. I was glad to here that we made people happy and my wife and I morn the loss as well. We still do catering from time to time. I would be more than happy to let you know what really happened to wrappsody or just share stories. Thanks again for the memories.

                  1. re: dextor74

                    Dextor: Thanks for posting! Still miss you guys and still have fond memories of your paella wrap and the moo shu wrap, among others. My guess is you either had issues with your landlord (because it's almost impossible to make a go around here if you don't own the place) or the city (because WP requires more permits, inspections and what-not than any other town around). Have you considered opening elsewhere around here?

                    1. re: Dim Sum Diva

                      Hi Dim Sum, You nailed it right on the head. It ended up costing 50% more to open in WP because of the way the city works. Also we had major landlord issues. Most noticeable a suit 10 days after 9/11 that lasted 6 months and ultimately caused our closing. Not a day goes by that we do not think of opening again. Thank you again for your warm memories.

                3. I think you need to change your yardstick.

                    Deli Delicious...RIP. They did a good business back in the day! Not sure what happened. I used to get a "Mainz": corned beef, smoked turkey, cole slaw, maybe swiss, Russian dressing on Rye. Awesome! They changed their style in the millenium, more panini's & wraps, which were still good, as well as the hot (usually Italian) food. It was convenient & usually parking was available, hope something else goes into that location, there really isn't any other place in that immediate area to get a quick sandwich.

                    1. re: vinouspleasure

                      not limited to that by any means, but some good prep will make for a better one at one place than the other, a good italian combo is great but most use boars head, so the only real difference is what they put on, and yes the bread. so just using as an introduction/first try.that is also why i asked if anyon else has tried wolf's lane

                      1. re: rich51

                        Have you tried Lange's in Scarsdale Village? They have excellent grilled chicken sandwiches.
