Best Kosher Pastrami

What are the opinions on Kosher deli in NYC? With 2 Avenue Deli, a"h, with unsure reopening status, what are recommendations for top quality kosher deli meats in the NYC area?

      Mr. Broadway? You've got to be joking. Maybe 15 years ago.

      ESSEX ON CONEY wins hands down. (https://essexdeli.rapidorders.com/pro...). Branches by Wall St. & in Flatbush. Second is probably the Mendy's in Grand Central.

      With regard to Second Avenue Deli, according to the person who answered the phone, look for a post-summer opening..probably after the Jewish holidays. Then, the question of best pastrami will be moot, because our beloved Second Avenue Deli--or "The Two" as my family refers to it--will be back, albeit on Third.

        My favorite during my more recent trips has been Ben's Deli.


        "Best" is very subjective, but I enjoy their sandwiches and love their Pastrami. All of my guests have enjoyed their food as well, so that should be worth something!
