The pastrami at 2nd Avenue Deli is the real deal. Juicy, tender, and served warm. The prices can be a little high, but the sandwiches come piled so high with meat you don't mind so much. They also have chocolate soda, babka, strudel, and other deli classics.

Great local place to go for deli food if you live around the neighborhood.Can get a little pricey, but can be worth is for what you get.My personal favorites are the pastrami and corned beef. Good portions and good quality meat. There is the option to either sit down or take out if you prefer.Service is usually pretty good but can take a long time if you do not order in advance.Matzo ball soup is also very excellent, not too salty either.There are also great combination sandwiches as well, try the phenomenal pastrami and salami combination if you have a big appetite.
