Went here on a recent Saturday with my husband and we ordered a pastrami sandwich on marble rye with a side of their homemade baked beans. Wow!! From here on in, this will be the benchmark for all pastrami sandwiches. It was moist, flavorful and pure deliciousness!!! The baked beans were a classic rendition of baked beans with an interesting combination of spices.

Stopped by the Boston Public Market before a Celtics game to avoid the offerings at TD. My Rachel was good but not what it could be. The pastrami was pre sliced and kept in a pan. Better would be to hand carve to order. While it may take time to do it's the best way and how it's done at any good deli. Was not much meat on the sandwich and pricey. So, enjoyable but could be much better.

Nothing out of the ballpark at this location. Overloaded with slaw on the Ruben and meat was just average.

When you see "hand carved" pastrami you have to take notice. Reminiscent of Hershel's... the great spot in the Reading Market in Philly. This is a great pastrami sandwich. Next time I'm going to try some of their other items... soup was sold out.

I was really really looking forward to trying the pastrami here and was unfortunately disappointed. The prices are OUTRAGEOUS ($17 for a sandwich with not even a pickle, the pickle is 50 cents extra), so I expected a New York deli size sandwich (and for it to be excellent). Sadly the sandwiches are sort of normal sizes, but the pastrami wasn't that great. I walked by and saw that it is the thicker sliced pastrami, which I like as much as the thinner deli sliced, but the taste was just "okay" and the pastrami was so fatty in parts, that by virtue of being so thick it was chewing a piece of rubber. $9 for a half sandwich or $17 for a full for this quality pastrami really leaves something to be desired.
