Long Island

Where To Go For National Pastrami Day

On January 14th, we celebrate the miraculous creation that is the pastrami sandwich. These sandwiches, made from cured cow navel, were eaten by many new immigrants to this country at the turn of the century, and boy do we still enjoy them today. For your next pastrami fix, try one or all of these four stellar Long Island delis.
