New York Gourmet Deli Expands to West El Paso
Earlier this year many locals were introduced to a new lunch spot in Downtown El Paso, New York Gourmet Deli.
The deli, which is located just a few steps away from San Jacinto plaza at 203 Mills Ave right across the street from Park Tavern has gotten nothing but great reviews from locals but one question many people had was, can we get another deli soon?!!
Well, that wish has come true!
New York Gourmet Deli has finally opened their second location in west El Paso. It’s located at 4108 N Mesa
The new location is located next to UTEP and is a much bigger space than the downtown location which is PERFECT for college students who may need a place to study during lunch.
New York Gourmet Deli in downtown El Paso is owned by two New York brothers, Ramzi Elnaham and Abdoh Ali, who came from the Middle East but spent most of their lives growing up in New York.
The new westside location is still a family business but it is now owned by their cousin, Ehmed.
The brother’s had a few businesses in New York and it was after a visit to El Paso that made them decide to start a business here.
“We actually came to El Paso to visit because my uncle had a couple of small shops and he had been here for a couple of years and we came to visit him and we liked it over here,” said Ramzi Elnaham.
Growing up in New York, both men were used to seeing deli style shops on every New York street corner, but when they came to visit El Paso, that wasn't the case.
“We looked around and we didn't see any delis so we thought about opening up a New York deli over here and it’s been doing good a lot of people like it,” said Ramzi.
The deli serves a large variety of food including salads, sandwiches, smoothie, and of course New York style subs with their most famous sub being the Philly Cheese Steak.
The Deli offers customers a lot more than just food. Just like any other New York deli, it offers items that people might only be able to get at a gas station.
“It’s like a one stop shop because we have medicines, snacks, sodas, and chips. It’s a big menu as you can see,” said Ramzi.
