I was just reading about Peter Haller's go-to places. One was Wexler's Deli. Had a photo of their pastrami sandwich. Nice photo. Thick slices like Langer's. Unfortunately, that's not what my friends and I had yesterday. We were on a GCM tasting tour. The pastrami was chopped fine and incredibly fatty. Yeah, fat is good but not at a 50 to 50 ratio. At least not to me. Langer's still beats everyone, and edges out Katz's because of Langer's incredible rye.
We did have good burgers with eggs on them at Egg Slut. And a great carnitas taco at the place right next Egg Slut, right at Broadway. Sorry, I don't remember the name.
