Little Italy: Attman’s Deli

I was born and raised in New York and since moving to Baltimore I’ve heard plenty of wonderful things about Attman’s Deli in Jonestown. It’s located on a famed block called ‘corned beef row’ because this particular block is packed with the best corned beef, pastrami, and other deli delights in the city. On a Saturday afternoon, I was really craving a sandwich and remembered the rave reviews I’ve heard of Attman’s Deli and finally decided to give it a shot.

From the exterior, Attman’s Deli looks like your traditional Jewish deli that you’d find in New York. And when you enter the establishment, the aromas of the deli are overwhelming.

After anxiously waiting in line and having trouble deciding what I wanted (everything just looked phenomenal) I decided to go with the Cloak and Dagger. The sandwich contained corned beef, cole slaw and russian dressing on rye bread. The corned beef was tender and moist and not overly salted and the cole slaw added a nice crunch. But this sandwich was messy and I loved every bite. Hands down, this was the best authentic deli experience I’ve had in Baltimore.
