Kornblatt's New York Style Delicatessen - On 23rd Ave in Portland, OR

The food here is pretty good. The only problem is that I expected more from a New York style deli. Once you say that you're a New York style deli, I automatically hold you to a higher standard. If this was any other sandwich shop, I would probably say it's really good, which (more objectively speaking) it is. The bread seemed a little airy and dry and the meats seemed like they had been sliced hours ago instead of when I ordered it. I thought that my Empire State Sandwich, which the menu warns "No Wimpy Appetites Allowed" about, should have had more meat and more flavorful dressing on it too. I guess I'm saying the New York style sandwich didn't measure up... It was weak in comparison.

I will say, however, that the place has a great atmosphere to it and the staff was colorful and friendly. And I say that even though the waitress pointed out to us that there was a parking enforcer across the street giving her a parking ticket as she watched. Not very professional, but not enough to keep me from going back if the food was amazing, which it wasn't. It was simply good.
