Manhattan deli can keep its “heart attack” sandwiches

Las Vegas-based Heart Attack Grill claimed menu items infringed its trademarks

New Yorkers who enjoy scarfing down massive calorie-laden sandwiches at a famous local kosher deli can rejoice.

Manhattan’s well-known 2nd Ave Deli sells a $25 culinary creation called the Instant Heart Attack Sandwich, which features layers upon layers of corned beef, pastrami, turkey or salami packed between two potato latkes. Last year, Las Vegas-based Heart Attack Grill threatened to sue the New York deli over the Instant Heart Attack as well as a new sandwich called the Triple Bypass Sandwich that was in the works at the time. According to the Nevada restaurant’s cease-and-desist letter, the New York establishment’s sandwiches infringed its trademarks for its various heart attack-themed burgers, including the Quadruple Bypass Burger, which features four half-pound beef patties, eight slices of American cheese, a whole tomato and half an onion.
