The "Second Avenue Deli", a kosher Manhattan deli, won a lawsuit against the Las Vegas-based "Heart Attack Grill" and has been allowed to keep the name for its "Instant Heart Attack Sandwich". Furthermore, it will also be able to go on with its plans to introduce the "Triple Bypass Sandwich".
We don't know whether to congratulate them on the news or to call 911. In any case, we're talking about a "Sin City" and a "City that never sleeps". What else can you expect other than heart attacks and bypasses?
The "Instant Heart Attack" is a sandwich consisting of two large potato pancakes with your choice of corned beef, pastrami, turkey or salami... the price is $24.95, plus the cost of emergency room, co-payments and tips for the ambulance driver.
A federal court ruled that the deli will be able to use the name only in Manhattan while heart attack grill will use its trademark of burgers throughout the United States.
