I ate at the famed Carnegie Deli in NYC yesterday for yet another succulent pastrami sandwich!

Their pastrami is the best I ever had (Harold's in Edison ,NJ is a VERY close 2nd. I do like Harolds rye bread better, though)

Carnegie location 7th ave, just south of 55 st.

very "subway accessible"...take the F train to 57th st or the N train..

don't expect "friendly , smiley service" though....and they do pack you tight..
just a great pastrami!

I generally like Katz's a little better than Carnegie because of the bread, but I like Carnegie's cole slaw better. Carnegie location is better. Katz's is kind of "out of the way." The picture makes me hungry - I miss them all.

Enough looking at this picture....I'm on the way to Costco for some Carnegie pastrami. It's the best we can do here in ATL.

Our local supermarkets carry Ba-Tempte half sours; see if yours does. They will be in a refrigerated section, if they leave them on the shelf too long they will get soft due to the brine. Take them back.

The (N.Y.C.) food thing is definitely looking up here in Dallas.
Costco is selling Carnegie Deli Pastrami. Central Market is selling Ba-Tempte
products as well as Sabrett products. Tom Thumb Markets are selling Yoo-Hoo and Fox's U-bet chocolate syrup.
And, believe it or not, Wal-Mart is selling.......Mallomars!
Who needs to go to NY?

None at the grocery stores here.
I had to order them online thru Amazon/Gourmet site.
(still shuddering at the cost)--That was back in spring. I have not reordered any yet.

I think I'm in love.
Too bad I'm stuck in this midwestern, regional food vacuum.

My first time at the Carnegie I had the Woodie Allen, Corned Beef and Pastrami on Rye.

The Cole Slaw was great and yes, they have both sour and half sour pickles!

Ellen...I just had a great meal at a party. I came home, saw your photo, and got hungry! Yo!
Over on the East Side, check out Pastrami Queen on Lex about 76th or so, east side of Lex. Aiyiyiy! It is mesmerizing-good.

Yes Costco does sell it so that you can take it home and enjoy it. Also in the NE they have it on their menu in the food court for 5.99 pickle included. It's delish!!!

<<Yes Costco does sell it so that you can take it home and enjoy it.>>

I've had the Costco Carnegie deli Pastrami and I've been to the Carnegie Deli. Anyone who thinks that what they sell at Costco is remotely as good as the real thing, has never been to the Carnegie Deli.

PS: I've been to the Carneigie Deli a few times thru the years. My favorite memory of there is when we took my daughter when she was about 8. She looked over to the next table and and announced in her loud clear voice "That's Roseanne (Barr)!!", Typical of NY, no one until that point had even noticed, including my wife and I. At which point Roseanne looked over and said "Well at least SOMEBODY knows I'm here". We still talk about it. --Ken

I went to NYC last week and had that sandwich at Carneigie Deli ... I have to say it was the best Pastrami on Rye I have ever had... I can't wait to go there again.

That looks SOOOOO good!!! I know the Carnegie pastrami is not going to be near as good as a meal in the Deli, but I think I'll buy some at Costco next time I visit, as well as some half sours. I grew up in Connecticut, but the next time I'll be passing through NYC will be on my way to my 20th hs reunion, in 4 years, lol.

While the Carnegie deli pastrami at Costco is not exactly the same thing as what is served at the deli itself, it is a pretty darn good approximation. My biggest gripe is that the Costco product is a good deal "wetter;" you really have to drain a great deal of whatever it is they pack it in (brine?)

One day maybe I will get one of those .. of course I dont have any plans to go to NYC so that will make it hard to have one of those; and also pretty hard for me to make it to Peter Luger's as well
