According to New York City readers of the Daily News: The Best Pastrami is at Basin Mill in Brooklyn. Katz's second. Let the arguing begin

    Living as I do in the Columbus, Ohio area any pastrami anywhere else has to be better than what is available locally now that the only Kosher market closed.

      In the 80's I designed a great kitchen for a family who just happened to make 90% of all the pastrami for all the delis in NYC.  They were the Pastrami Kings of NY.  They sold the same pastrami to everyone--none of the well known delis made their own, it was too much trouble. 
      So when they said they made their own they were telling a little white lie---they made the sandwich not the meat---- but  SO WHAT  it was great no matter where you bought  it.  Delicious stuff......

        My favorite pastrami is not in New York at all, but at Harold's New York Deli in Edison, NJ (not to be confused with the OTHER Harold's New York Deli's; the one in Parsipanny is not bad, but the one in Lyndhurst is is beneath contempt). You can actually taste the smoky flavor.
