Price Check: Pricey Tongue at Second Avenue Deli

by

We recently ran into a friend who had just eaten at the new Second Avenue Deli. He reported that a tongue sandwich cost him $22. Somewhat alarmed, we decided to do a little comparison shopping. Below, the pre-tax prices for tongue on rye. There’s quite a range, but then again, a tongue sandwich isn’t something you want to mess around with…
