Katz’s Deli and Alidoro are giving a new meaning to the NYC subway–the two iconic sandwich shops are collaborating with the MTA on a special limited-edition subway sandwich in celebration of the subway’s 118th anniversary.
The sandwich, named the 1904 Sandwich as a nod to the year the NYC subway system was founded (October 27, 1904), is served hot, featuring Katz’s spiced pastrami, garlic confit cream, Calabrian pepper dijon slaw, and aged provolone served on a fresh rye sourdough baguette.
It will be priced at $14 or offered as an MTA Away lunchbox special for $17 with the addition of cookies and a bag of chips. 75 customers who purchase the lunchbox special will be chosen at random to receive $50 in OMNY subway/bus fare.
“This is a dream collaboration for us,” said Alidoro CEO Jon Streep. “The NYC subway is both the figurative and literal lifeblood of the city; the arteries that in many ways connect us all while we’re here. Our mission was to bring the ALIDORO experience to as many people as we could; and it is our hope that in this time of recovery and return to normalcy, we can spread love through food to those coming back to this great city.”
The sandwich will be available at four of Alidoro’s Manhattan locations: Bryant Park, Rockefeller Plaza, Moynihan Train Hall, and The Hugh now through the end of October.
This collaboration is a way for the MTA to let New Yorkers know that they are here for them by reminding them that delightful and delicious experiences are just a subway ride away.
So, why not make your work commute a little bit more enjoyable with this tasty sandwich?
