Windham Mountain and Centerplate Introduce Famed Carnegie Deli Concept to Mountainside Culinary Lineup
WINDHAM, N.Y. (February 12, 2021) – Windham Mountain and its hospitality, catering and culinary partner Centerplate today announced the addition of the famed Carnegie Deli to the slate of food offerings for families at the popular Catskills resort, beginning Friday, February 12th ahead of the busy Presidents’ Week holiday. The iconic New York City delicatessen, Carnegie Deli, is known as “the world’s most famous delicatessen.” Carnegie Deli has been treating New Yorkers and tourists since 1937 with gargantuan pastrami and corned beef sandwiches and decadent cheesecakes. This is the first time that the Carnegie Deli experience will be available at a ski resort.
Windham Mountain and Centerplate will continue to employ strict adherence to all COVID-19 protocols to ensure a safe dining experience for all visitors.
“Since stepping in to enhance the dining experience at the mountain a few months back, Centerplate has been great at tapping authentically New York partners to create a more memorable dining destination for our guests of all ages,” said Chip Seamans, President & General Manager, Windham Mountain. “As we look to attract an influx of year-round special events, the addition of Carnegie Deli is the perfect update. Oversize portions and an over-the-top attitude… the essential New York experience.”
The following Carnegie Deli offerings will be available at these locations on the mountain:
The Hot Pastrami Sandwich at the Mountain Express Cafeteria and Seasons Restaurant
The Hot Corned Beef Sandwich at Seasons Restaurant
Potato Knishes at Seasons Restaurant
“We are continually thinking of fun, new ways to excite people,” added Sal Ferrulo, Centerplate Executive Vice President. “And what better way than bringing Carnegie Deli, an authentic New York fixture, to the skiing and snowboarding community of Windham?”
This exciting venture was made possible by Old World Provisions.
