Need to find a good deli in Downtown Toronto

Sarah_G Jul 17, 2009 06:07 AM

Hey everyone!

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on a good deli in the downtown core. I work in the Financial District however live in the Bathurst and St Clair area. Can anyone suggest something in between? I'm looking to get a good pastrami sandwich.

Thank you!

    Best bets within those parameters are:
    Corned Beef House on Adelaide
    Caplansky's at College and Clinton (but moving soon)
    Mutual Street Deli at Dundas and Jarvis.

        Thanks for the input! I'll be sure to check New York Deli out as well.

          Not to be pedantic, but it's called the New Yorker Deli. Might help if you're trying to map it. I tried their pastrami the other week, which was fairly thinly sliced warm, had a really nice peppery crust, and was available with an onion bun and nice mustards on request. Worth a visit.

        Thank you for the suggestions. A co-worker mentioned Corned Beef House so I plan on heading over there at lunch. I will definitely check out the other two. Do you know where Caplansky's is moving too?

              Interesting...I have a friend who loves that deli so I'll have to pass on the info to him. Side note, I went to The Corned Beef House today for lunch. It's my new favorite spot for lunch now! Fantastic sandwich. The beef was tender and a good portion too.
