In August of last year La Mandi, an authentic New York style deli, opened at 3205 Jefferson Avenue in Clifton. La Mandi was an instant success with modestly-priced deli sandwiches, salads, breakfast items (including omelets), etc. Recently La Mandi broadened its horizons with new dishes and a Friday special. New items available on a daily basis are the chicken shawarma gyro, the lamb shawarma gyro, and “the mix” (a combination of lamb and chicken shwarma) gyro, all available for $6.99. Also new, the Friday Special consists of the following:
2 portions of chicken w/rice: $8.99
2 portions of lamb w/rice: $12.99
1 portion of chicken + 1 portion of lamb w/rice: $10.99.
After picking up the Friday Special today, I walked over to the Clifton Library, which recently moved a few blocks, to Jefferson Avenue. The food was delish and succulent. The Friday Special is available every Friday from 12:30pm to 8:00pm. If the special is successful enough, La Mandi will start running it other days as well. Hours are 8am to 8pm Monday through Saturday; the phone number is 513.559.0000, and you can call for carryout, delivery, or catering. It’s great to see this new business having such success while adding fresh new reasons to pay them a visit—yet another reason Clifton is a great place to live!
