I was on my way for a garlic/snails fest at the french bistro on okeechobee west of military trail , emporium shoppes and true to their word, they closed the lunch door at 2 pm..I then noticed a few tables just north of them and looked in and saw it was a new deli..
I went in thinking that it was some make believe deli when I noticed all the pastrami and corned beef pieces......National Deli brand...same as Toojay's use and now I am sure Ben's does too, even though they swear they "make' their own (maybe heating it up means that they make it) With the reported demise of Pastrami Queen (is it really true?) a new replacement is needed.
Anyway got their combo pastrami/corned beef and it was a DELIGHT. Of course I then ordered the french fries and was most happy and satisfied with my meal. I am sure every one else will go and criticize the small place but well, just enjoy (as they say).
btw place is called Empire State Deli
