Which deli to choose in Manhattan?

doctorj | Mar 5, 2008 02:18 AM

Hi! I spent a nice year ('06) living in Manhattan and going to culinary school -- and managed to dive into a huge chunk of the food scene that the city had to offer. However, the one thing that I didn't really get to sink my teeth into was the deli scene. The only one I had tried was Carnegie, because of its proximity to where I was staying. I must say, though, that I did enjoy my pastrami and corned beef sandwich.

This spring I'm bringing my little brother to the city and I promised him some of the best eating of his life.. which brings me to my question: if I could choose just one classic New York deli to take him, which one should I go to? Carnegie, Katz, the new 2nd Ave...?
