SB has some great sandwich shops but Norton's is by far the best. It's a shame they have such short hours and are closed on Sunday.

Had the pastrami sandwich as heard it was amazing and it didn't disappoint! Served quickly and was delicious. It's obviously in an expensive area but I still think it's a touch overpriced which is why the 4 stars, the food and service deserves 5!

Classic deli packed into an efficient cubbyhole shop. All the traditional favorites, and delicious. Great spot for a quick and tasty lunch.

Today was my 3rd visit since seeing it featured on DDD. It was a good today as it's always been. The pastrami was flavorful and tender. Portions could be a little bigger to match the price. I'd give it another 1/2 star if priced less.

this place is always busy at lunch and most seem regulars. Nothing fancy, in fact if you keep the table too long they ask you to leave. The pastrami is the best I have eaten and lots of variations on pastrami, beef, and corned beef....More
