‘Instant Heart Attack’ Sandwich Can Stay On NY Menu After Lawsuit


heart-attack-sandwichNew Yorkers can still order up an instant heart attack.

The Second Avenue Deli won a court fight with a Las Vegas-based burger joint Friday over the names of their gut-busting foods. The New York deli’s sandwich called “instant heart attack” is made of sliced pastrami and fried potato latkes. It costs $24.95.

The Heart Attack Grill in Vegas had ordered the deli to stop serving the fare on trademark infringement grounds. The deli took the grill to court, and a federal judge in New York sided with the deli. Owner Jack Lebewohl tells the Daily News of New York he’s delighted by the ruling.

The Second Avenue Deli is also allowed to sell another sandwich called the “triple bypass.” Lebewohl says it includes “everything but the kitchen sink.”

  1. I hope the picture which shows cheese and meat cooked together is just a file picture. I hope 2nd Ave Deli doesn’t serve meat and milk cooked together, even if it is open on Shabbos.
