So, it's almost time for the annual 2 week pilgrimage to visit Grandma in King's Point. Looking for good Jewish style deli, doesn't have to be kosher. Please don't say the one at Sample Rd. flea market, it's dreck and we have been there way too many times. We will travel for good food, could be as far north as Boynton Beach or Coral Gables, if it is really special. Thanks!

    Nothing compares to the New York top Deli's such as Carnegie or the former 2nd Ave Deli. In Tamarac/Lauderhill, Pastrami Club is pretty good. Ben's Deli on Boca Delray border is also pretty good. There have also been good reviews for Pastrami Queen in Boca, but I haven't been there yet.

      Thanks Meg! We are from central Ohio, not exactly a bastion of deli choices.

      Pastrami Queen! Pastrami Queen! Pastrami Queen! Did I make my point. Can't be beat. The best pastrami outside of Katz's in NYC (get it hand sliced). Great house cured corned beef also. The skirt steak is fantastic as is everything else. Great food.

        Hands down the best deli in southeast Florida food wise with nyc deli feeling as well is Pomperdale's on Commercial Blvd in Fort Lauderdale just before the bridge over the intercoastal in a strip mall. Try the corn beef or pastrami. Close your eyes and you will feel like your at the Carnegie in nyc. Guaranteed.

          But be aware that Pomperdale's is not open for dinner.
