ThIs is by FAR THE BEST DELI FOR PASTRAMI IN NYC. I am an avid fan of anthony bourdain's show no reservations, watch it all the time, i am also a lover of killer pastrami, well he was on a typical adventure eating his favorite bone marrow. To thank this guy for the best marrow he has eaten, he told him that when he got back to NYC he was going to send him a pastrami sandwich (also his favorite nyc sandwich) from the 2nd ave deli. Wow that struck a bell, yummy! So i went to give it a try and wow i was totaly disapointed, fatty, greasy, soggy..... Sorry Anthony not the best in NYC. GO TO SARGE'S Mr BOURDAIN and have your palette pleased with the best lean delish pastrami you ever ate!
BTW if you are concerned about fat you can request extra lean and they will remove what little fat is there! WOW where can you get that done in a deli! and if you are not a pastrami fan try the sarges favorite delish brisket served over a potato pancake smothered with gravy! and a side of apple sauce, btw it comes with soup as a special for linch for around 10 bucks!
Enjoy this incredible deli, might see ya there i go there every time i am on the east side of manhattan!
