8500 lbs. of Beef
We stopped by Canter's Deli last night around 11:00 p.m. to see the lines ourselves, witness the hoopla and grab a quick rugula. Daily News reports that Canter's estimated selling "10,000 sandwiches packed with 8,500 pounds of corned beef brisket."
Other Canter's Deli consumption stats:
- 4,900 pounds of pastrami per month
- 1,500 gallons of chicken soup a week
- 4,000 knishes a week
