    Although there are very few traditional kosher delis left here in NYC, young foodie hipsters are reviving the cuisine. Having learned how to make their own pickles, they are curing their own pastrami to go with it in Williamsburg and elsewhere.

    I'm sure this trend will reach your coast soon.

      two thin slices of rye just doesn't seem that appealing nor healthy.  Just thinking about it made my cholesterol go up a few points.

        I swore off decades ago, and only indulge about once a year (from Katz's, on the way home from a specific annual event, if you must know).

         But younger people, who tend to be less concerned about their LDL levels, are into it. Heck, it can't be any worse for them than the braised pork belly they were all swooning over five years ago.

        And when you come right down to it, pickles aren't that great for you, either - tons of sodium! Oy!
