'Heart attack' sandwich can stay on New York menu

Saturday, July 07, 2012

New Yorkers can still order up an instant heart attack.

The Second Avenue Deli won a court fight with a Las Vegas-based burger joint Friday over the names of their gut-busting foods.

The New York deli's sandwich called "instant heart attack" is made of sliced pastrami and fried potato latkes. It costs $24.95.

The Heart Attack Grill in Vegas had ordered the deli to stop serving the fare on trademark infringement grounds.

The deli took the grill to court, and a federal judge in New York sided with the deli.

Owner Jack Lebewohl tells the Daily News of New York he's delighted by the ruling (http://tinyurl.com/chhsajn ).

The Second Avenue Deli is also allowed to sell another sandwich called the "triple bypass." Lebewohl says it includes "everything but the kitchen sink."
