It’s Picnic Season! We Love These Upper West Side Delis

One amazing thing about the Upper West Side is that even though it’s a bustling neighborhood filled with every restaurant and shop you could want, we also have lots of green space that’s ideal for relaxing back with family and friends on a picnic.

If you have a picnic planned in the works, you can get all of the sandwiches and salads you could want – at the very best quality – thanks to our tasty Upper West Side delis. Here are just a few of our favorites that are worth checking out!

Amsterdam Deli, located at 481 Amsterdam Ave, New York which is a six minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is known for their hot breakfast and lunch sandwiches, plus groceries and flowers, at this corner deli.

With great prices and even better food, there’s a reason why the Amsterdam Deli has remained so popular with locals for years! Everything here is made to order, including their delicious fruit smoothies which make for a great snack on the go.

Barney Greengrass, located at 541 Amsterdam Ave, New York which is two blocks from your Sagamore apartment, has been a Jewish deli institution since 1908 and is known for their smoked fish. If you can’t decide what to get, then go for one of their world-famous smoked fish platters so you can try a little bit of everything.

They also offer online orders! When a delicatessen with a 100 year history of serving the finest foods to the most discriminating customers decides to make its offerings available online, there’s a lot to think about.
