New York City's iconic Carnegie Deli resurfaced in SoHo this weekend (a few miles from its original location), and hundreds of people lined up around the block for impressively stacked, 99¢ pastrami sandwiches and 50¢ black and white cookies. Fat knishes, dense slabs of cheesecake, and massive turkey sandwiches—all at equally ridiculous low prices—rounded out the menu. The decor and details were also pulled straight from 1958.

It’s a promotional stunt, of course, to hype season two of the Emmy award-winning, extremely '50s NYC show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which begins streaming this Wednesday on Amazon Prime. Timed, 30-minute reservations for a table are completely booked for the restaurant's entire week-long run, but the gentleman at the front counter will gladly sell you takeout for the same prices. If, that is, you don't waste his time with a lot of inane questions—as the sign says: "Can't decide? Step aside"—and you're willing to wait on line for, potentially, hours. (There are apparently 6,000 people on the waitlist!)

Is it worth it? I tried the pastrami and the black and white and both were first-rate; certainly “better than the last time I ate at Carnegie Deli”, as multiple wags put it during the hour or so I was there on Saturday morning. And the attention to detail throughout is impressive, the setting busy with genuine vintage and retro Carnegie Deli seating, signage, celebrity photographs, and other period touches. A jukebox spinning 45s sits in the back, while up front is an antique photo booth, free for all to use. Parked out front on Saturday were three classic cars, including a beautifully maintained Checker Cab. Clearly, the deep, trillion-dollar pockets of Amazon are at work.

The best part of the whole setup are the actors, who all pull off that great old brusque NYC attitude (and accents!) with aplomb. All proceeds go directly the Lower Eastside Girls Club, but if you do get a table don't forget to tip your server in 2018 dollars.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Carnegie Deli is located at 201 Lafayette Street, between Spring and Broome Streets, and is open from now through December 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.
