Also off the beaten path is Hometown BBQ in Industry City. They do an excellent pastrami there. Worth the trip.

Pastrami Queen on Lex and 78th also makes a worthwhile trip.

Mark, who is your fave for pastrami? I do love Katz’s, but agree on the other items.
I'm not Mark but while I really like Katz's pastrami I think the pastrami at David's Brisket in Brooklyn is better. But they don't ship.
Intriguing, and a quick search says ther are others that agree with you. But location is a bit off the beaten path for when I return to NYC.
Depending on where you're staying it's only 2 blocks from an A/C stop. It takes me the same time to get to David's as it takes me to get to Katz's. But that's an artifact of the subway system and it means no side trip to Russ & Daughters.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

You know, I still haven't been there. Not sure why. I either don't think of it when I'm in the neighborhood or I don't have time.

Laborio is to Gelato as Katz is to Pastrami

The outdoor seating / roadclosures in Brooklyn are a godsend and hopefully won't be forgotten as an artifact. No reason why there should ever be cars on Berry, Smith, or 5th Ave.
