A Sandwich a Day: Pastrami at Pastrami Queen

New York Craig Cavallo 8 comments

Is Pastrami Queen the Upper East Side's best option for a pastrami sandwich? It's been turning out a fine rendition ($17) on 78th and Lexington since 1995. More

New York Craig Cavallo Post a comment

At Eisenberg's, your Reuben ($10) is offered with corned beef, pastrami, or turkey; pastrami's the way to go. More

Sarah Woo 6 comments

Langer's Deli in Los Angeles celebrated its 65th Anniversary by giving away free #19 pastrami sandwiches for two days straight. Cured, smoked, steamed, and carved by hand, some call the #19 the best pastrami sandwich around. More

A Sandwich A Day: Pastrami on Rye from Famous 4th Street, Philadelphia

A Sandwich a Day Hawk Krall 9 comments

When you think of sandwiches in Philadelphia, the first things that come to mind are cheesesteaks, hoagies, and maybe roast pork. But at one time Philly was also a serious Jewish deli town, a tradition that still hangs on at Famous 4th Street, one of Philadelphia's oldest and best known delis. More

A Sandwich a Day: Pastrami on Rye at David's Brisket House

New York James Boo 8 comments

If you've never been to David's Brisket House, now is a good time to make your first pilgrimage. The Bed-Stuy institution—a longstanding Jewish deli now operated by Muslims—has re-opened its doors after being closed for over two months of renovation. More

A Sandwich a Day: Italian Combo from Freddie's Sandwiches in San Francisco

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Sloss 2 comments

Freddie's Sandwiches has been around since 1926 which, in California terms, is a real long time. So you have to assume they have to be pretty good at what they do, particularly in North Beach, a neighborhood that has turned much of the authentic into the tourist-driven. More

A Sandwich a Day: Classic Italian Hoagie from Amato's Deli in Philadelphia

A Sandwich a Day Hawk Krall 18 comments

A common argument among Philadelphians is what sandwich defines us best: the famous cheesesteak or the slightly lesser known roast pork. While I've eaten plenty of both, my vote goes to the Italian hoagie. Not a ham and cheese sub, or some ciabatta-arugula trainwreck, but a real Philadelphia hoagie. More

A Sandwich a Day: The Corned Beef on Rye at Attman's Delicatessen in Baltimore, MD

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

Attman's, located in Baltimore's Corned Beef Row, bills itself as a real Lower East Side-style New York Jewish delicatessen. The atmosphere and attitude are spot on. The service is gruff and fast-paced—you'd better know what you want before you start talking to the deli man. After I ordered my corned beef on rye, I jumped in with a last-minute decision: "I'll have a hot dog too, please." More

Sixth and Rye, Spike Mendelsohn's Kosher Deli Truck in D.C.

Elaine Kouroupas 16 comments

As Good Stuff Eatery fans, we were curious about Spike Mendelsohn's recently launched kosher deli food truck, Sixth and Rye. Considering the dearth of Jewish delis in D.C. and the delicious-sounding menu, it was no surprise that Sixth and Rye opened to 30-minute lines when it first hit the streets. After patiently waiting, we ordered the corned beef sandwich, challah loaf, black and white cookie, pickles, cous cous salad, and seltzer lemonade. More

A Sandwich a Day: Renzo Special at Molinari Delicatessen in San Francisco

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Sloss 8 comments

The Renzo Special ($8.75) is one of nine sandwich combos at Molinari's, a back-to-basics Italian deli and sandwich shop complete with hanging salamis and walls of pasta. The storefront would be at home in any city's Little Italy, but the prime selection of neighborhood-sourced sandwich ingredients makes Molinari straight San Francisco. More

HIT Korean Food & Deli: Kimchi and Reubens in a Chelsea Office Building

New York Erin Zimmer 7 comments

Bibimbap and Reubens from one deli? That you have to walk through an office building, past a doorman to find? It's a little confusing, but something of a Korean deli speakeasy, and just a five-minute walk from SEHQ. More

A Sandwich A Day: Cranberry Chicken Salad at Jay's Deli in Philadelphia

A Sandwich a Day Hawk Krall 1 comment

Jay's Deli is your basic center city corner grocery that just happens to make awesome sandwiches at the deli counter. Normally I might be sketched out ordering chicken salad from a corner store, but this place is super clean, always busy, and every sandwich is made to order. The combination of slightly sweet cranberry chicken salad, crisp bacon, lettuce, tomato and a smear of mustard on freshly toasted bread was delicious, uber fresh, and just the break from foot-long pepperoni-ranch cheesesteaks I've been looking for. More

A Sandwich a Day: Hot Sicilian at The Deli in Fairfax, VA

A Sandwich a Day Maggie Hoffman 8 comments

This strip-mall deli (next to the Kmart in Fairfax, Virginia) doesn't look like much, but the Hot Sicilian ($10 for an 8" sandwich, $13 for 12") is a sandwich worth seeking out. The meat is freshly sliced, and the bread just soft enough to make eating this monster sub easier. Topped with fistfuls of salty salami and coppa, fiery hot pickled peppers, and cooling provolone, the flavors mingle under a splash of oil and vinegar. More

A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Meat at Schwartz's Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen

A Sandwich a Day Sydney Oland 25 comments

The smoked meat sandwich is as quintessential to Montreal cuisine as poutine, and of all the places that serve it, Schwartz's Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen is the gold standard. Smoke brisket piled high on un-toasted sliced bread, with a meager spread of mustard. The quality of the smoked brisket is what elevates this sandwich. More

Hot Dog of the Week: Reuben Dog from Fricano's Deli in Austin, Texas

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 5 comments

Fricano's is an offbeat deli and neighborhood hangout in a strip mall near the University of Texas in Austin. It's a laidback place plastered with artwork and hand-written menus, run by a dedicated group of friends that have taken the business from hidden gem to one of the city's favorite sandwich spots since opening in 2006. Lately they've also developed a following for their crazy hot dogs, made with Boars Head all-beef franks and loaded with homemade toppings. More

Mile End: Great Dinner Menu, But Skip the Smoked Meat

New York The Serious Eats Team 24 comments

The crew at Serious Eats has loved the idea of Mile End, a self-styled Montreal deli in New York, since it opened just about one year ago. We all love the Montreal-style smoked meat we've eaten at Schwartz's, and of course our love of pastrami and smoked meat knows no bounds. It's just that every time we have tried Mile End's smoked meat, it hasn't been quite right. But how does their brand-new dinner menu stack up? More

ZOMG: Pastrami Cheese Fries from Kenny and Zuke's in Portland, Oregon

Erin Zimmer 37 comments

Cheese fries: been there, eaten that. But pastrami cheese fries? It's hard not to notice them under the "Sides & a la Carte" section of the Kenny & Zuke's menu. The words are practically yelling at you, highlighted in a special yellow box with curly font and "ONLY $8.50." Once you spot them, you really don't read anything else. Kenny & Zuke's claims to have some of the best pastrami in the world. Well, the world, if you don't count New York. More

Video: Ben's Best Delicatessan, Third Generation Deli in Queens

New York Erin Zimmer 5 comments

Just like you can't leave Peter Luger without ordering steak, you really can't go to Ben's Best Delicatessen without biting into a pastrami sandwich. In this latest episode of Food Curated from documentarian Liza de Guia, we meet Jay Parker, the third generation owner of the deli in Rego Park, Queens. He started as a grill boy at age 13, where his job involved making sense of frenetic orders: "four with, three plain, two with mustard, hoo behhh fehhh faster, faster!" (that was pretty much a direct quote from the video). But even years later, the pastrami is still slow-cooked exactly the same way. More

New Jersey Dispatch: The Deli King of Clark

New York BrianYarvin 6 comments

People don't go into Deli King for four pounds of meat, they go to get what their parents got fifty years ago. More

A Sandwich a Day: Willie's Italian Special at Graham Avenue Meats & Deli

New York Adam Kuban 8 comments

"A lot of places, they just throw everything on there and load it up too much," said Willie, who told me he used to work at Graham Avenue Meats and only filled in for the owner when the owner was away. "When you do that, you can't taste the different flavors." More
