PASTRAMI ON RYE AT 2nd AVENUE DELI
A few years ago, the 2nd Avenue Deli opened in Murray Hill without losing any of the greatness that made it an institution in the East Village since 1954. No sandwich is more of a New York classic than pastrami on rye. While 2nd Avenue’s pastrami isn’t cut thick like Katz’s, for $15.95 it’s enough of a meat bomb to keep you satisfied throughout the day. The meat is just fatty enough with a nice smoky spice and works best with the dual combo of mustard and Russian dressing. Bread got a little soaked and greasy towards the end, but they always give you extra slices for any rogue bites left behind.
