    That's a pretty strong statement, but I lack the expertise & therefore the inclination to argue the point. Have you checked other brands and locations, though? NYC seems to get the most high ratings.

    I haven't access to decent pastrami where I live, so my question has to be, "Where can I order good pastrami?" And for that matter, corned beef? (Haven't had the nerve to try to corn my own.)

    I am by no means a corned beef expert but I have had good corned beef in Milwaukee, Chicago and NYC. Knoxville, TN does not know what good corned beef is but I bought a beef that had been corned at Walmart. I cooked by their directions and it was excellent. I first sampled it hot out of the oven but even after I pulled it out of the frige and reheated it, it was very good. I think it was around five pounds and it had all the spices floating around the clear plastic package.

    That is a pretty strong statement since the East Coast and especially NYC is famous for pastrami and corned beef. RickF, I'm sure that Katz's Deli or Carnegie Deli would ship pastrami. Lucky girl that I am, my uncle lives in Michigan and I just got my 4th of July "Care Package" from Zingerman's Deli!!! Pastrami, corned beef, kosher dill pickles, rye bread, kraut.....

    I'd suggest relaxing just a bit. There's excellent pastrami available all over these days. I get pastrami in a Central Ohio kosher market that is the equal to any I've had in New York.

    LA has some great pastrami ... somehow, perhaps via presentation, the experience is different than the NYC experience. (The Hat, for example.)

    There is a new place here in Seattle (Factoria? Goldblums?) ... anybody have any experience with them?

    Vienna Beef produces an excellent pastrami, that is sold in L.A. and throughout the US. It's naturally hickory smoked, fresh, domestic grain fed beef that is carefully rubbed with seasonings that is available in two spice varieties: New York-a robust pepper crust, slowly smoked to perfection(heavy spiced with a slightly sweeter blend of brown sugar and coriander pepper) and Roumanian-a light blend of spices and pepper(lightly spiced with pepper and brown sugar). It's available in a variety of sizes, both whole and sliced:

    Pastrami Navels-Whole(traditional hot pastrami
    Pastrami Briskets-Whole(can be served hot or cold)
    Pepper Beef-Pastrami Flats & Eye Rounds(great for trays)
    Sliced Pastrami(portion control)

    I'm originally from N.Y., but I haven't tried the Pastrami sandwiches that have been top rated (although I will the next time I go back). But I think the best Pastrami sandwich in L.A. is at Brent's Deli in Northridge. You can get it lean or regular (I like it regular with that tasty fat) and the rye bread is superb (warm and soft on the inside and crunchy on the edge). A chocolate egg cream with it and I'm in heaven.

    Linda and I purposely visited LA two months ago just to sample Deli and Roadfood joints in the down town area. I love Jewish delis ( X New Yorker) especially the corned beef and pastrami. " funny,I'm not Jewish"
    To my liking Langer's Delicatessen is buy far the best pastrami on the West coast. The best pastrami yes, but I don't believe the best Deli............ I prefer Nat'n Al's delicatessen in Beverly Hills.
    New York pastrami is available here flown in daily to the Stage and the Carnegie Delis, both have joints in Las Vegas.
    But. For me New York pastrami is not the best on the East coast. I found a Deli in Florida that is (shudder) better. ........... The Original Pastrami Club, Lauderhill, FL it's good ,very good. ... Frank

    I would say Langer's has the best Pastrami in L.A or Southern California, but having grown up on the East Coast, it falls short of
    Katz's, Second Ave Deli and a host of Jersey deli's.

    But it sure is a good substitute

    My brother -in-law went to the Carnegie Deli in NYC recently, paid $21 for a humongous pastrami sandwich.

    Maybe some folks never saw what a New York Pastrami sandwich looks like. Here is one in all it's glory ........... Carlton Pierre, The Carnegie Deli pastrami is $12.95 and if you want one as pictured here it's $3 bucks extra............. your brother-in-law must have had a slice of cheesecake and coffee along with his sandwich or he's a Southern Gentleman and big time tipper.......

    That looks about like what he described. When I asked what it cost he told me $21 so maybe he had a few extras, but that is a heckuva sandwich.!!

    Katz's, Carnegie, and Second Avenue are all around $13 for their signature sandwiches. Either your brother-in-law was exaggerating or he was giving you the amount for the entire check.

    For what it's worth, I know of few people who would tell you that the $13 sandwich in question is not worth every penny.

    Let's talk about something not so subjective, like parking. It cost anywhere from $20 to $40 a day to park your car in manhattan. What is it in your town? Oh, by the way, there's a 18.5% tax on top of that.

    What you've pictured is, I believe, a combination pastrami and corned beef sandwich. At least, that's what the ones I make look like.

    Yeah...that can turn your $13 sandwich into a quick $50 lunch. Add in the cost of any tolls or train fare if you are not already in the city, and it sure makes me glad that I travel to NYC on the company nickel, rather than live there! It is much easier to expense train tickets, parking, and tolls than the $100 tab at Luger's!

    Sharp eye Michael.................... Pastrami on top corned beef on the bottom. that's the way I like-em in NY the "combo".......... In LA at Langer's Delicatessen I'll take the pastrami straight up and the same at the Original Pastrami Club in FL.
    I think the folks will get the idea of what a $15.95 NY Deli sandwich looks like............... whether it's corned beef or pastrami or the combo of both ......... Frank

    I wouldn't jump to that conclusion. Food critics often site Langer's as having the best pastrami in the nation. So, it's not an outlandish statement. I've been to Langer's and they were great. My personal favorite is still Canter's.

    My husband loves this one deli back in Lyndhurst Ohio- some bagel place on Mayfield called Broadway Bagel.
    They use Sy Ginsberg corned beef- yum!

    We are tring out Katz's pastrami and corned beef tonight in Manhattan.
    Pray the kids behave for us so we can eat a decent meal :)
