The Catene Deli has been holding down a corner of Fourth Avenue and 9th Street in Brooklyn for 44 years. You'd think from the signage that the joint was a major affair. But walk in and you find the narrowest of spaces. Counter on the left, cold sodas in the back. It does not stretch the length of the Catene sign by any means. Instead, it's about as wide as the "Heroes" end of the awning.
There is no menu posted. The only way of telling what they've got is to browse through the take-out menu. Fried Calamari would seem to be a specialty, based on the sign, and certain testimonials on the blogosphere.
