Paul - I sometimes go back and forth, but the Carnegie is always number one or number two for me.
Carnegie, Harold's and then Katz's. Hey, try all three and see what you think...Couldn't hurt.....
Make that FOUR places, as you should really get to Irving's in Livingston, NJ , as well , newbie PAUL4FOOD !
(u 2, Baah Ben, next time )
YES, PAUL4FOOD, the CARNEGIE IS really THAT good !!!
(warning: once in a blue moon, I have received a pastrami sandwich that was "off", but most of the time, perfect)
I LOVE the way you've caught right on to the Roadfood SPIRIT, Paul4Food !!
All that deli talk we do has got you salivating, huh?!? (can't blame you!)
Remember, if delis come certified from either Ellen, Baah Ben, or Bruce and Sue, that is like the Good Housekeeping "seal of approval".... (I'm VERY fussy with my pastrami!!)
I was just SO grateful to hear that THE Harold was THERE, as he almost always is, anyway...
it would've just been a REALLY BAD BREAK if he had just stepped out for an hour or so to run to the bank , whatever, and you had just missed him!
(after all that Roadfood talk we've done regarding Harold's Deli, and the legend himself, THE Harold, it sure is nice to see you shaking his hand, Baah Ben...!)
and it's real nice to see that your Trip Report got such a nice response...
p.s. You're right, Roadfooders, that eclair DOES look like it's got a piece of brisket wedged in !
(and I did'nt even notice that till you pointed it out.... lol)
