Pastrami out of NY: D.Z. Akins

A couple weeks ago, I went to lunch at D.Z. Akins with my friend S., who I hadn't seen in awhile. I'd been meaning to try it for awhile since I miss my Jewish delis back home, and this place is supposed to be awesome.

I ordered a reuben, because I miss reubens like crazy. Even better, I was allowed to alternate pastrami and corned beef, which made the sandwich even better. S ordered just a regular pastrami/corned beef sandwich, which she said was good too. The sandwiches were ginormous, although not as crazy as Katz's in NY. The meat was good -- flavorful, tender, just good. The cole slaw was so-so, unfortunately, but they did have a jar of unlimited pickles at each table, which, for a pickle eater like me, was so awesome!

Then afterwards, we shared a HUGE brownie from their bakery case. The brownie was all right - drier than I'd like.

I'd like to go back though and try some of the more "Jewish" stuff, like matzoh ball soup, etc.
