Pickles Deli at Bally's Atlantic City: Not all sandwiches are created equal6 July 2012
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Goodie-gluttons, career-carnivores and ravenous-rye-lovers rejoice, because Pickles Deli at Bally’s Atlantic City has a sandwich so gigantic no conventional plate will suffice. It's a 3.8-pound monolith that can only go by one name: behold – The Monstrosity with Mustard. And till Labor Day guests can take it on in an epic challenge.
While the name is quite a mouthful in itself, nothing truly compares to this staggering sandwich tower. Dreamt up by Bally’s Executive Chef, David Utley of Bally’s, this titan is forged of one pound of Pastrami, one pound of Corn Beef, 4 ounces of Dijon Mustard, 4 ounces of Red Onion, 12 slices of Tomato, 12 leaves of Lettuce, 24 thin slices of Kosher Pickle and three slices of Pullman Loaf Rye Bread.
“The fact that The Monstrosity with Mustard weighs in at 3.8 pounds says it all. It’s the biggest and baddest sandwich I’ve ever seen here at Bally’s in all my years,” said Jerry Beaver, Director of Food and Beverage for Bally’s Atlantic City. “Pickles, Bally’s, possibly the entire Atlantic City Boardwalk will never be the same.”
So are you one of the brave who wishes to take down the breaded breast? Then prepare your stomach for the fight of its life, because the quest for infamy commences now. From this point on Pickles will offer the sandwich to all who wish to go mano a mano with the monster. Challengers will be given 30 minutes to finish off The Monstrosity with Mustard, but be warned: the plate must be licked clean. Those displaying the intestinal fortitude required to slay this demon of the deli will not only be praised with a photo on the Pickles Wall-of-Fame, but will also receive a sandwich of their choosing from the Pickles menu every day they walk into Pickles until Labor Day 2012.
Pickles combines all the staples of a traditional New York-style deli. The plentiful menu boasts reasonable prices and features such Jewish deli classics as Matzo Ball Soup, Stuffed Cabbage with Gravy, and Potato Latkes Pickles. But it could be argued the real stars at Pickles are the oversized and stuffed sandwiches: Corned Beef, Pastrami, Brisket, Tongue, Turkey and Reubens. Its hours of operation are from Noon to 8pm Monday thru Thursday and Noon to 9pm Friday thru Sunday. Pickles features inside dining accommodations as well as Boardwalk seating, and alcohol options include wine and beer.
Please be aware The Monstrosity with Mustard must be ordered 24 hours in advance, no exceptions.
