Here’s How You Can Own a Piece of Carnegie Deli’s Kitchen

Off the beaten Lower East Side path for a moment…

Dead in the ground just three weeks, the now-shuttered Carnegie Deli is auctioning off all its furnishings and kitchen contents. Too bad the priceless ephemera (framed photographs of celebrity diners) wasn’t treated with the same respect, having been dumped on the sidewalk last week.

Anyway, a tipster sent along the listing for the public auction, which goes down tomorrow at the old deli, 2:30pm. Here’s what’s on the block:

854 7TH AVENUE, MANHATTAN, NYC, BET 54 & 55 ST.
WORLD FAMOUS CARNEGIE DELI
4 Globe ss meat slicers, computerized scales, Hobart buffalo chopper, Traulsen revolving dessert case, deli case, Montague stoves, griddle, upright broiler, convection oven, refrigerators, freezers, bain maries, steam table, char grill, metro racks, ss shelves & tables, 100 dining rm chairs, 40 dining rm tables china dinnerware, flatware, glassware, pots, pans, utensils, ss inserts, trays, chafing dishes, Memorabilias & much more.

The legendary, 80-year-old Carnegie Deli served its last pastrami sandwich on December 31. It was such a tragic loss that even our local competitor, Katz’s Deli, remarked in sadness. Owner Jake Dell told the Daily News, “I’m a New Yorker and a deliman, so of course I am mourning the closure of the Carnegie Deli.”
