New York's 2nd Avenue Deli will be allowed to continue selling its "Instant Heart Attack" sandwich thanks to a Manhattan judge who ruled against a copyright infringement claim by infamous Las Vegas illness-monger The Heart Attack Grill.
After the 2nd Ave Deli received a cease and desist from the Heart Attack Grill — once a Phoenix-based chain, but now a single establishment in the Sin City — over the questionably named sandwich which consists of half-a-pound of Corned Beef, Pastrami, Turkey or Salami between two large potato pancakes, the deli filed a lawsuit to settle the matter.
In addition to the Instant Heart Attack, the deli will also be permitted to sell a new artery-clogging concoction called the "Triple Bypass" which contains "everything but the kitchen sink."
The ruling does come with a caveat: Neither sandwich can be marketed outside Manhattan.
The Heart Attack Grill — whose slogan is "Taste Worth Dying For" — made headlines earlier this year when a customer suffered a real-life heart attack while consuming the restaurant's "triple bypass burger."
