NYC Corned Beef in Dallas

I want one of those melt-in-your-mouth corned beef sandwiches I had in NYC. Any ideas?

  1. You talking about freshly prepared corned beef or a good deli cold cut?

    If deli cold cut I would try out the NY Corned Beed or Pastrami they have at Central Market. It is worht the $10 - $12/lb price tag.

    Other than that I would say read up and make it yourself because no place around here that I know of makes their own. I don't even think DeliNews, Roasters, Cindy's and Zinsky's make their's in house. I could be wrong about that though.

      Zinsky's reportedly does. I like Deli News sammiches, though. The huge amazing 12 dollar version is incredible. Run from Roasters.

        I don't think Zinsky's does make theirs in house (unless they've changed from when they first opened). They buy the corned beef pre-corned and cook it in house. And the Pastrami is already smoked when they get it, and just reheated in house. It's still very good though (in my opinion - but I have limited expertise here)

        This is my approach. The ginormous Deli style sandwiches don't do it for me. Thought I could get something reasonable but after hitting several recs it's just easier to do it myself.

      3. DELI-NEWS!!! Preston and Cambell.

          Don't forget the giant bowl of matzo ball soup.

          1. re: DallasDude

            Now I will say, the matzoh ball soup at Zinsky's is very good!

            I also vote for Deli News, the corned beef hash breakfast is absolutely wonderful.

          3. Personally, I don't think Roaster's will last.

            1. bump since i think some of these places arent around anymore. i just moved back to dallas after 4 years in ft lauderdale and i havent found a great pastrami sandwich yet. living at lovers/greenville.

              1. Pack a small bag and head to the TCU part of Ft Worth and enjoy a sandwich @ Cahrshons Deli. Excellent pastrami - I don't believe they make/cook it there, but think they said they corn and cook their own corned beef (haven't tried that). Eggy potato salad and creamy slaw with mayo based dressing and a sprinkle of caraway. Worth the drive.
