Sandwiches

Corky & Lenny’s has been a bustling, Woodmere neighborhood favorite for over 60 years, and the shabby diner-style Jewish Deli is still stacking sandwiches high and over-stuffing Clevelanders’ bellies. From its expansive menu, you have the choice of eggy breakfast items, specialty salads, hot soups for cold Cleveland days, burgers, or giant sandwiches like the Sammy Kay (made with pastrami, corned beef, muenster cheese, and thousand island dressing on toasted rye). Did we mention the crunchy dill pickles and sweet, creamy cole slaw? If you’re feeling more adventurous you could try a stuffed tomato or the savory Beef & Latkas (corned beef piled on crispy potato pancakes and served with applesauce or sour cream). Corky and Lenny’s sandwiches have even graced the stomachs of NBC’s Today Show hosts … that’s some peerless pastrami.
