    Very popular with tourists. The pastrami sandwich is really amazing — and I don't even like meat very much. You may want to share it, since it's huge. Of course, there's always a line on weekends.

    Maybe a bit clichè, but the pastrami on rye is just to die for. Service isn't flawless, but the food makes up for it. We picked up breakfast here for a Central Park morning picknick, recommended!

    Get in line and get your pastrami sandwich. A must stop in New York and ask how the business model works...or doesn't work. A big tourist stop too so don't be in a hurry.
