Celebrate National Hot Pastrami Day at These Upstate New York Delis
January 14th is National Hot Pastrami Day. So you have had just a few days to "get into training" for the big day.
When you think of a hot pastrami sandwich, does your mind go to those mouthwatering images of the sandwich as served in the great Jewish delicatessens of New York City? Those towering, delicious-looking sandwiches on the best rye bread you've ever tasted? Yes, mine does too!
Here are 11 great delicatessens scattered all around the Upstate New York region. Aside from all of them having outstanding pastrami sandwich options on their menus, many of these eateries have fascinating stories of their own. Some are favorites adored by locals and travelers alike. There's one place on the list that offers over 40 different kinds of sandwiches, and one place that first opened almost 100 years ago! So the next time you're in one of these areas and looking for a tasty bite to eat, you know where to go.
And while these Upstate New York eateries may not exactly match our dreams of the mile-high stacked pastrami sandwich of, say, Katz's famous deli in Manhattan, New York, many of them do come pretty close. The sandwiches offered at the eateries on this list range from the beloved, traditional hot pastrami sandwich to pastramis with a twist.
So, take a look at these photos, and prepare yourself for the big day coming up. And,...don't forget the pickle!~
