One of the things I regretted most about going on this new health kick was giving up on Jewish delis. Oh, I know, they are really only supposed to be a treat anyway, but when you think of deprivation, Pastrami sandwiches on Rye go right to the top of the list. So when I had an actual excuse to eat at the recently re-opened Second Avenue Deli — as a means to collect on a bet I made between my boss and myself on the winner of the last Super Bowl, he being a smug New England Patriots fan — I finally decided to take the opportunity.

The newly rebuilt Second Avenue Deli, near the corner of 33rd and 3rd Street in NYC. The original location, that was founded in 1954 on 2nd and 10th was closed in January 2006 due to rent negotiation problems.
