Everything Pancho said.

I like to get a pickle with my sandwich. Also, don't go putting 2 slices of meat on there either, I don't like sandwiches you can slip under a door. Good bread is a must. Hot pastrami and good salads.

When I think of a deli I think of sandwiches. The ingredients have to be top notch and that includes everything from the bread to the meat to the mustard or other condiments. Skimping on any of these things will keep a deli from being great IMO. When I think of a deli I think of NY Jewish deli so things like bagels and bialies, fishes like whitefish and sable and lox are a must as well.

It is all about the quality of the ingredients though.

My fav deli sandwich is a ham a cheese in pita bread. Thats my fav. But the deli I go to makes their own bread so I think that has alot to do with it.

I was born in NJ and had tons of family in NY. I think I send more time in NY then my home growing up. I miss those knishes and stuffed derma and all the other great stuff!

WOW thanks for all the feedback. Definetly some things I hadn't thought about before like imported meats (which seems like a no brainer now) and lots of pickles. Keep em coming these ideas are really wonderful!

Thanks again,

Eva

I've often thought that a make your own, sandwich bar would work. Charge by the pound. Any deli must, IMO, have the best ingredients. and, yes, sliced fresh. Homemade pickles, a selection of top quality mustards.

There was one deli in my hometown that I used to go to just for their egg salad sandwiches. The eggs were chopped to about 1/8", and there was not too much mustard or mayonnaise. Delicious!

On the salad side of things I would do a zesty cole slaw, a personalized mac salad and the same for the potato salad they have to have your touch to give them your signature taste. The deli across the street from my house growing up had a unique potato salad that I loved and I am not a big fan of potato salad as a rule.

The make your own sandwich thing is a great idea however you have to worry about sanitation issues then. I personally would not go into a deli where I made it myself like that. I am germ phobic though.
