Brooklyn Deli Opens In Times Square and Offers The Willy Loman Reuben

Fireman Hospitality Group celebrates the opening of the new Brooklyn Deli in Times Square with an official ribbon cutting today, (which also happens to be National Reuben Sandwich Day) just in time for the holiday season, with Wendell Pierce, star of Broadway’s Death of a Salesman. Located at 1501 Broadway at the Paramount Building with the entrance on 43rd Street, and as the second Brooklyn Deli location with the original across from Carnegie Hall at 200 West 57th Street, Brooklyn Deli Times Square is 3,460 square feet with 130 seats, serving New York comfort nostalgia dishes including their signature Hot Pastrami Reuben sandwich, hot corned beef sandwiches, Chicken Noodle Soup, Classic Hot Dogs, as well as specialty breakfast items such as Eggface Sandwiches and Artisanal Egg Jars.  The Brooklyn Diner partnered with Death of a Salesman as it is one of the season’s biggest hits and they want to share the light of the show and cast.   It is the story of a family in Brooklyn, their American Dream, and their belief in it.  They debuted their signature Pastrami Reuben, the Willy Loman Reuben in honor of the lead character that Wendell Pierce portrays. Members of the Broadway League, The Times Square Alliance and NYC and Co. were also in attendance.

Our most popular menu item will be named the ‘Willy Loman Reuben’ to celebrate our opening.”
