Visiting The NYPD, "New York Pickle Deli" In Rocky Hill, Connecticut

I Got "Caught" Eating At The New York Pickle Deli In Rocky Hill, Connecticut

I got caught....eating at The New York Pickle Deli, NYPD in of all places Rocky Hill, Connecticut. It was after a "big heist", that my friend Tina and I were found lunching at this regional favorite restaurant that combines good food, a love of all kinds of collectibles and an obsession with police themes.

After "The Heist" We Worked Up An Appetite

Oh by the way "the heist" wasn't really a robbery, but we did haul off a big load.....a beautiful glass, mirrored, lighted showcase for my antique shop, "Kitsch n Stuff" that I owner smacked down $200.00 in cash for a half hour earlier from a fella in a nearby condo development !

You Will Find Lots of Quirky Collections At The New York Pickle Deli (NYPD)

The knick knacks, memorabilia, collections, collectibles are everywhere (but not for sale). Truthfully it's hard to pay attention to the menu when you first arrive because there is so much to take in. But then you watch the deli sandwiches and burgers go by and you scramble to your table to capture a waitress.

Bringing New York City To Rocky, Hill Connecticut

Darlene and her husband Ken own The NYPD. When asked how the NYPD gig got started Darlene explained that her husband collected movie posters and worked used to own a Newstand in ew York City. So Darlene and Ken put together three themes when planning this deli in Rocky Hill: "NYC", "Pickles" and "Memorabilia

Highlights From The Menu

The menu reflects, owner Ken's dream to incorporate a NYPD theme into the restaurant. You will find sandwiches such as:

"Behind Bars" (Roast Beef, crisp bacon, melted cheddar cheese etc)

"Jail Bird" (Grilled Roast Turkey, sliced tomatoes, onions,melted cheese etc.).

"D.W.I" (Turkey Breast. Corned Beef, Swiss Cheese etc,).

"Assault and Battery" (Turkey and baked Ham with fresh spinach leaves, etc.)

"Missing Person" (Fresh Onions, Mushrooms, Roast Beef, Cheese, Bacon, BBQ sauce etc).

"Deputy Dawg" ( One half pound Hebrew National Hot Dog etc.).

"Best of The Wurst" (Mother Goose liverwurst piled on rye bread with the works).

Is The Food Any Good At NYPD? It Is D E L C I O U S

I guess you are wondering if the food is any good............come know be can't make it into this column unless YOU ARE DELICIOUS! And for the record (not the police record) my dad owned deli's in NYC...and I have a place in my heart for good old fashioned piled high sanwiches!

Visit the NYPD on-line (and listen to the Dragnet theme playing).
