Thursday is the Final Day for Blimpie’s Special Spicy Indian Sandwich

Blimpie Off the Menu "Special Vegetarian" Sandwich

This terrible news was just sent in from Midtown Lunch’er Elizabeth about the Blimpie on 46th btw. 5+6th:

I know you’ve called out this Blimpie for the scary vegetarian sandwich, but I just went for my favorite ghetto lunch today, and there are signs saying it is closing. It sounds like it was supposed to close tomorrow but it has been extended through Thursday. So they are offering two specials: free combo with the purchase of a giant sandwich, or $1 combo with the purchase of a regular sandwich.

This is terrible news for all the fans of the “Indian” special spicy sandwich (with Doritos)… and bad news for any fans of Blimpies in general- which seem to be disappearing at an alarming rate. The Blimpie on 35th btw. 7+8th closed last month.


  • I really hope some other local deli picks up the recipe. There certainly is enough demand, and demand created the sandwich in the first place. Nacho sandwich is dead! Long live nacho sandwich!

  • just dropped in. TODAY/TUESDAY is actually the last day for the “chatney special.” also they are trying to find a place nearby to take on the sandwich as a sort of adjunct, in the way they’re an adjunct to blimpies now.
