Pastrami, Corned Beef, Brisket- My Man!

***** Pastrami, Corned Beef, Brisket- My Man!

A recent e-mail,

Maybe you can help me out here.
I’m new to the area (Delray Beach).
I’m looking for a place to get great corned beef, pastrami, brisket sandwiches like they serve at Katz’s in NYC. Not interest in the Natioanl Deli garbage that Too Jays and bagel joints serve up.
Would really appreciate some recommendations.

First, welcome to South Florida.

If you check JEFF EATS-up at the top there is a SEARCH BOX…type in PASTRAMI, or CORNED BEEF, or BRISKET- (you may also want to throw in DELI-for good measure) and it will pull-up for you all of the “columns” that relate to pastrami, corned beef, brisket. If memory and my waistline serve me correctly, you’ll find a load of joints that make some pretty decent stuff.

Just so you know, Jeff Eats’ style isn’t to be in the pecking order business. What I might like, you might not like, so forth and so on! With that in mind, IF I had to pick ONE JOINT-near you- to feed my face with Pastrami, Corned Beef and Brisket it would be ZINGER’S DELICATESSEN in Boca Raton…now, if Zinger’s doesn’t work for you- don’t worry, there are a load of other joints that will fix-you up just fine!

By the way, based on your e-mail, I’m thinking that you’ll soon be “writing” Jeff Eats about good-Chinese joints. So, save the ink…use the same SEARCH BOX for my “picks”-you know, sweet & sour pork, egg rolls, pan fried dumplings, so on and so forth…

Hope this helps you out.

    Jeff, On your say so, I recently started to follow the Burger Beast website and really enjoy its take on things. Thanks for the heads up on that site. Just a quick question, you do know that Burger Beast is trying to be Jeff Eats, don’t you?

      Steve Hamilton:

      Just had a chance to read your comments.

      I’m glad Jeff Eats could turn you on-to Burger Beast…it’s a real good site.

      Of course I know that Burger Beast deep-down wants to be Jeff Eats, but then again, everyone wants to be Jeff Eats, right?

      For what it’s worth, Burger Beast has given me some great “eating” ideas-and that’s the name of this food blogging game. Personally, it’s one of my favorite food blog sites…and trust me, I read a ton of them every day.

      Thanks for reading…

    Burger Beast is great , but he needs to calm down on his eating if he wants to still be around in a few years . I’m on his Facebook and he must eat 4/5 meals a day.

    You Da Man,
    Had a pastrami on rye at Zinger’s yesterday and it was delicious. Also had a potato pancake which was also delicious.
    Next up for me is Blue Willie’s and Pomperdale.
    Thanks for your response.

      Not really close to Fort Lauderdale but if you are ever in the Naples’ area Pastrami Dan’s is a must.
