Carmelo Anthony

Immortalized

on Rye Bread

2/22/2011 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You know you've arrived in New York City when the famous Carnegie Deli names a sandwich after you -- and Carmelo Anthony has landed in a HUGE way.

0222-carmello-sandwich-ex-tmz
Carmelo's trade to the New York Knicks isn't even official yet, but Sandy Levine, owner of the Carnegie Deli, tells TMZ they are already launching the new Melo Sandwich and it is packed with everything you could ever want on a sandwich:

-- Pastrami
-- Corned Beef
-- Salami
-- Bacon
-- Tomato
-- Russian dressing
-- On rye bread

The sandwich will run you a cool $21.95 and that price was chosen for a reason -- if they sell around 3,000,000 of them ... it equals the $65 million contract Melo is likely to sign with the Knicks.

Antacid costs extra.

This solves the mystery of why New Yorkers are so fat, pale, paunchy and disgusting - look at the type of sh*t they eat. A $22 sandwich with the FAT content measured in ounces, not grams. Why not call it what it is - the Feast of Cardiovascular Doom?

There are 2-3 classic jewish delis like this in Manhattan and they all serve monster sized sandwiches. Your best bet is to ask for 2 extra pieces of rye bread. Cut them in half and make four (still big) half-sandwiches to split with 3 other people for $5.50 each. People do this a lot, dine-in or takeout, and split it 3-4 ways all the time. More manageable and you can split a quart of matzoh ball soup if it's not enough.
