Best pastrami in Bklyn Hts/Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens Area?

A good friend upstate has a hankering for great Brooklyn pastrami. Any ideas about where I can pick some up in this area?

    Although not right in your Nabe, maybe Jay and Lloyd's has decent, albeit, expensive, pastrami. Also, what about that famous, local sandwich shop that all the const and telecom workers frequent for lunch?

        Is there any Pastrami in Brooklyn anymore? The only place I know is Adelman's on Kings Highway. Oh, that Glatt place on Coney Island Ave & Ave J.

        All the rest seem to have closed down ages ago.

          Pete's Waterfront occasionally does a house smoked pastrami on marbled rye as a sandwich special. It is not traditional pastrami, but when they have it it is exceptional.

            Only place close that has it is Junior's, and it ain't all that good there.

              Just so you don't get left hanging on the question, I'll venture an opinion... there aint none in our neighborhood. Sorry. But look at the bright side... Katz's is not far away. If he/she is really your good friend, go there & get the real thing.
