John's Deli in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn

John's Deli in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn was founded in 1968 by John Cicero. It has been voted as the home of "the best hero in Brooklyn". This ‪#‎hero‬ is the "John's Signature Hot Roast Beef with Mutz and Gravy" which consists of a half-pound of thinly sliced ‪#‎roastbeef‬ and two slices of ‪#‎mozzarella‬, carmelized onions and dark gravy on a long hero roll. We love their ‪#‎vintage‬ ‪#‎sign‬ with its unique ‪#‎font‬ spelling DELI as well as the ‪#‎script‬ "John's".

  1. I used to live a couple blocks from here on W13th. They spoofed this sandwich on an episode of 30 Rock called "Sandwich Day" when the teamsters would reward the staff at 30 Rock once a year with sandwiches from an "unknown location" just like the ones at John's, dipped in gravy.
