Pastrami near Lincn Ctr

I'll be at Linc. Center tomorrow and would like to find some pastrami near by. I've been to Katz Deli. Thanks.

  1. Lansky's, Columbus b/w 70 & 71. Haven't been, but word is that it's not Katz caliber, but more or less OK.

    Lansky's Old World Deli
    235 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023

    1. I like the pastrami at Artie's, on Bway, around 82nd?

        I find Artie's pastrami utterly tasteless.

      2. These are probably your 2 best options - neither approaches Katz's. Obviously Lanksy's is closer

          If the place is Kosher than they might be closed for Passover...better check first

            I tell ya...I have had a couple corned beef ruebens at Lansky's that have been way better than any corned beef anything that came out of Katz's...Never had lansky's pastrami (i'd stick with Katz there), but I actually like Lansky's and it's worth going there....way better than Arties are Carnegie....

          2. Three basic choices, IMO: Artie's, Lansky's, Carnegie Deli. Never been to Lansky's so I can't offer an opinion. I prefer Carnegie to Artie's (but they're usually crowded and don't take credit cards - cash only) - and Carnegie isn't as good as Katz's.

            1. Artie's is OK. Not great, but OK.
              Not sure if it's good or not, but I think you can also get a pastrami sandwich at Zabar's (in the counter with all the prepared foods -- I've heard them promo it over the loudspeakers) but of course then you'd have to find a place to sit and eat it.
