NYTD is not your typical delicatessen. While it has some classic flavors and menu items, it delivers a little more by giving back to the community with an honorable cause. This Gilbert deli opened last summer (2016) with an amazing approach to staffing their restaurant by providing opportunities and employment to young people with developmental disabilities such as Autism. Owner Pam DePalma, and head chef W Rieth created a 12-week training program that teaches employees culinary skills and job training they can use in the future. This helps to combat the 90% unemployment rate for those with disabilities in Arizona. On top of this awesome mission to better people’s lives, they also make authentic deli sandwiches that are getting raving reviews on Yelp. The sandwiches and hotdogs are hand crafted and made with some local and always fresh ingredients.
Have to Try: The Cubano Dog & Reuben
