Pastrami Queen, 78th and Lex.

So I've passed by this place for months and months, and finally decided to stop in yesterday and try it. (To go). Place has a great retro look of the old Kosher-style delis that are few and far between these days. Staff very nice and helpful.

Got the pro forma pastrami on rye with russian dressing. Tore into it less than an hour later at home. WONDERFUL!!! Moist, thicker-cut meat, almost a pound of it (enough for 2) lots of pickles, and served on an absolutely GREAT NY Jewish rye bread.

So, much to my Doctor's chagrin, looks like this can become a regular stop when I pass by. Pastrami is my favorite, I never checked out if the turkey was real, right off the bone, or a processed version (yuk). Also want to try the soups.

A real throwback, nice to have it uptown, no need to trek down to Katz's which I think this place gives a run for their money. Pastrami sandwich was superb, almost perfect.

Anyone else made this nice discovery?
