PASTRAMI AT DAVID'S BRISKET HOUSE
After a hiatus, David's Brisket House has reopened on Nostrand Ave. in Bed-Stuy. I can say that it's definitely worth the trip out there for a juicy, salty but not too fatty pastrami on rye that rivals the legendary Katz's Deli. The prices, however, remain a lot lower. Sandwiches can be ordered in three sizes: small ($6), regular ($9), and large ($11-12). The above picture is the small so you can see that a small is still a good stuffed sandwich. The meat is cooked with great burnt edges and served with simple deli mustard and some fantastic pickles. Other people I went with had the brisket which came with a dark gravy and got high marks as well. I ordered a brisket for the road that I'll eat in a few days, so look for that review soon. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, make it a point to hit up David's.
