I just returned from a weekend visit to Detroit and stopped at Zingerman's in Ann Arbor on the way. I had the best Pastrami I've ever tasted - that includes the Carnegie Deli in NY, Manny's in Chicago and countless others (including earlier visits to Zingerman's, who have changed suppliers for their pastrami). They purchase their pastrami (no, they don't cure/smoke their own) from Niman Ranch. I'm not sure where that can be purchased in Chicago, but I certainly intend to try and find it. Whole Foods carries some Niman Ranch meats, but I don't know if they carry the pastrami. Suggestions?
