Lunchtime on a Friday on a dark day, and I decided to try the Corporate Deli. We had heard about this place for years, but had never gotten around to trying it, even though it’s nearby.
I really do wish these places would post clear instructions on how to order – whether or not you sit, order from the counter, etc. After a moment or two of confusion, I was pointed in the right direction and placed my order.
The place is decorated with warm burgundies and rich wood tones, and reminds me more of a bar than a restaurant. Still, there is a nice, relaxing feel to the place. I also really enjoyed their eclectic mix of music.
The menu is quite extensive, with typical deli fare. In addition, there are Philly Cheese sandwiches, salads, and grilled pita creations. Prices seem a bit on the high side for lunch, but not out of range for quality food.
I ordered the grilled chicken pita. This came with mixed greens and a vinagrette dressing. Turns out both the chicken AND the pita were grilled. Melted mozarella and a tangy homemade sun-dried tomato mayonaise finished off the pita. The flavors were wonderfully blended, and I give it high marks on all accounts.
By noon, the corporate crowd for whom the place is named began arriving, and I figured my table would be needed.
Note on the corporate crowd…Eye-candy: plenty to look at whether you are male or female. Unfortunately, I note a high correlation between being eye-candy and being high maintenance.
The Corporate Deli is also open for dinner, with a much more extensive (and expensive) dinner.
