Here is what the owner, Bill Vissicchio, thinks of his New York Deli…
What comes to mind when you think of New York? The city that never sleeps…Times Square…Broadway…that magnificent skyline…THE FOOD – anything you want at any time of day or night. There’s just something about New York food that tastes different, authentic, real. For me it was the comfort food – sandwiches – the delis that were on every corner each with its own distinct tastes and ways of doing things. I might drive past 5 or 6 delis to get to the one that had “my” sandwich.
What we have tried to create at Rocky’s is a menu of “my sandwiches.” A lot of memories, time and research were put into creating our menu. Many long hours were spent in many delis and sandwich shops all over the 5 boroughs and Long Island watching how sandwiches were put together and what tastes make them unique. Yeah, I ate a lot of sandwiches – someone had to do it. There are thousands of delis across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and only one of us, so we may not do it exactly the way you might remember at your go-to deli, but I can assure you, you will be able to taste the same pride and authenticity that goes into every product we offer.
Nothing says New York like Pastrami & Corned beef. The only way to get it right is to make it yourself. We do it from scratch – using USDA Prime brisket, sitting it in a brine for up to 2 weeks, rubbing what will be pastrami in our proprietary blend of spices then smoking it for 12-14 hours before cooling it and slicing it thin. Corned beef is taken right from the brine and baked with our spice blend. That pastrami on rye that you order from Rocky’s is 2-3 weeks in the making.
Roast beef cooked rare from scratch, cheesesteaks made from 100 % Ribeye, the best Italian cold cuts, fresh mozzarella made daily, sides and salads made from scratch…just some of the things we do to make every meal special.
And that NY breakfast…stop by on the way to work for an authentic ‘bacon egg and cheese’ on a hard roll directly from the JJ Cassone bakery in Westchester, NY. Bagels. We could probably get pretty good ones around here, but if you want a real NY bagel, why not get them directly from the source? Our partner at A & S Bagels in Franklin Square, NY (the same bagel shop I used to go to as a kid) ships them directly to us. They are boiled (in that NY water), par baked, frozen, and finished in our oven fresh. They are simply the best bagels I’ve ever had (and that’s coming from a NY bagel snob).
Anyone could slice some cold cuts, put a picture of the Statue of Liberty on the wall and call it New York “Style.” At Rocky’s… We Ain’t New York “Style” – WE ARE NEW YORK.
Savannah is my home now, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, but once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker at heart.
