Clover Delicatessen for Sandwiches that Please

An east side staple for many years, the Clover Deli (at 621 Second Avenue and 34th street) is an old school Murray Hill delicatessen of the original New York variety. Long may it reign.

I love the name and the signage.
Too bad the prices aren't what they used to be!

Adam said...

I'd love to visit this place. Does it taste as good as it looks?

EV Grieve said...

Amen, Ken. And I like the stroller just entering the frame in the top shot.

be still my heart
neon, curved corners, big slabs of tile walls
oh clover, you're lovely

There is nothing quite like a N.Y. deli. I really miss them.

Frank said...

I love the design, even the lettering for the signs. Just a great place. Thanks for capturing it so well.

Send me back in time for a virginia baked ham sandwich. 30 cents? Hell, I'll pay double.

Great photos!
Love the design of the name Clover Delicatessen and the building style. It looks a nice place to eat, too.

When I first saw this picture I imagined you telling us that it was closing down.. .thankfully not, and I agree. Long may it last!

Virginia said...

Oh what great shots, KM> I want a ham sandwich too! How do you find all these great spots? Hey, what's up with the Cheyenne?

is it just nostalgia, or do the "old" signs and designs truly please the eye.

maybe a little of both, huh?

we expanded the full storefront pic, and its a beaut! can you say desktop? hope you dont mind, Ken but this one's gotta be our wallpaper for a few.

thank you, as always: good work.

Ah to go back to the day when lettuce and cole slaw were in the same category as sandwich toppings.

And Bloodwurst? WTF?

They have great peanut butter iced coffee.
Not open on Sundays.

I admire this place everytime I pass it, which is plenty of times over the past 20 years. I hope to God they own the building.

Gotta love that neon sign!

Ken,

I sure hope you went in to eat! Wish it was closer.

How goes it?

marley said...

Here, here. I hope it remains. I like the old menu!

Good shots ! Thanks for sharing.

I'm guessing there is no chance of them honouring those prices today, no?

I know that place. I walked by it a few times but never really went inside.
