Shapiro's in Indianapolis

Bob Libkind | Jan 1, 200210:44 PM     3

I can't believe it! I can find on this bulletin board only one mention of Shapiro's of Indianapolis, where the best pastrami west of the Watchung Mountains can be found.

This ex-New Jersey resident (now in Philadelphia, where they may know their cheesesteaks but don't have a clue abut pastrami, with just one or two exceptions) was shocked but by no means appalled when he first stumbled upon the S. Meridian Shapiro's near downtown Indianapolis about five years ago. Very popular with the R&D and marketing crowd from nearby Eli Lilly. This cafeteria/deli/desserterie is always worth a detour. I was last there in April, stopping for lunch en route to St. Louis (it's just a block or two from I-70), indulging in matzoh ball soup, a pastrami sandwich and a key lime pie.

There's another Shapiro's location on Indianapolis's Northside, but I didn't find it quite up to snuff.

Any updates Indiana chowhounds?
