Back to the topic at hand...the bites. I made the trip over to Roxy Deli between shows on January 14th, National Pastrami Day. I hadn't eaten at Roxy since that fateful day back in 2004. I remembered loving the pink sauce, but it had been so long that my first bite, especially on the sandwich, was almost as if I was discovering it for the very first time. The sandwich itself is so big that one can barely take a bite. It is easily the size of two sandwiches in one, which is exactly what I made it into. I saved the other half for the next day, and it was every bit as good as the day before. If one can resist the temptation of scarfing down the whole thing, the price is pretty reasonable. If you can't resist the power of the pink sauce, you're looking at a pricey sandwich and a potentially upset stomach due to the pound of pastrami in there.
|Justin, what are you looking at?|
One of the best parts of the deli experience is the fact that pickles come with every meal. I'm a fan of half-sours myself.
Adam's favorite: McClure's Pickles and Bloody Mary Mix. Find it at Chelsea Market. You WON'T regret it.
I know it might seem touristy, but hey, what's so wrong with that? It's popular for a reason isn't it? I live here and after finding my long lost pink sauce, I'll be frequenting Roxy Deli from now on.
