Pastrami Sandwich

I have read mixed reviews about Katz's, I am looking for opinions on the best Pastrami Sandwich; I will be visiting my son this weekend (he's in East Village, we are staying in mid-town) and would like to take a Pastrami Sandwich to go. Any Recs?

Also, have reservations for Sat. night at Crispo, anything that are must haves?

Thanks in advance.

      Pastrami and Things closed about a year ago and it wasn't terribly good. IF you want pastrami you shouldn't consider, for even one second, going anywhere but Katz's.

        fUNNY, MUST HAVE CLOSED right after i moved from that area.

    2. For Crispo, bone marrow, spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti & meatballs, pappardelle w/wild mushroom ragu.

      1. Yeah, Katz's. The people who give it bad reviews are high on angel dust.

            seriously, its by far #1. though, i dont mind carnegie deli's pastrami.

          2. I'm like Mikey, I never agree with the Board majority but even I have to agree with the other posters: Katz's rules...

            1. Second Avenue Deli returning soon (please God). Otherwise...Katz's.
