Rival Restaurants Engaged In Heart-Stopping Legal Drama

There are a slew of legal debacles that have dominated the headlines in recent weeks. Barclays’ cross-continental interest rate fixing. ‘Obamacare’ passing. Anderson Cooper coming out. (Okay, maybe that one isn’t a legal debacle.) But honestly, all these cases hold little water when compared to the intense legal battle between New York City’s 2nd Avenue Deli and the aptly named Las Vegas restaurant The Heart Attack Grill. The point of contention? Who gets to call their sandwich the “Instant Heart Attack.”

Recently, 2nd Avenue Deli received a cease and desist order from the Sin City establishment. But instead of rolling over, the pastrami slingers simply fired a lawsuit right back at them. 2nd Avenue Deli owner Jeremy Lebewohl exuberantly exclaimed that he and his staff felt “vindicated” upon receiving the OK to continue selling the “Instant Heart Attack,” a cholesterol-catalyzing concoction which features a half-a-pound of corned beef, pastrami, turkey or salami between two large potato pancakes. Lebewohl and his crew also got the go-ahead to start selling their newest sandwich, the “Triple Bypass,” which contains “everything but the kitchen sink.”

However 2nd Avenue Deli’s victory can only be upheld within state boundaries, as they cannot market either the “Instant Heart Attack” or the “Triple Bypass” outside of New York. It’s a proud day for the Big Apple. New Yorkers, get your appetites (and cholesterol medication) ready.
