My wife and I have been thinking about indulging again after quite a lengthy layoff from pastrami. I think the last time we had a pastrami sandwich was at the old location of the Second Avenue Deli, and that was long before they closed, so it's been a number of years. We both liked what they served up at the Second Avenue Deli then, and in the distant past I've liked the pastrami at Katz's, but we haven't been there for quite some time either.
It might be a no-brainer to go to either the new Second Avenue Deli or to Katz's, but this may be the last pastrami sandwich for us for some time and we'd like to make the most of it. Who knows, maybe there's a place out there in the five boroughs that has even better pastrami than these two stalwarts.
So I put it to the Chowhounds in New York: where is the best pastrami sandwich in New York City today?
Thanks in advance...
