NYC is great for many reasons, not the least of those is the famous pastrami on rye sandwiches that you can get there. And Montreal is equally famous for it’s smoked meat on rye. Now Montreal’s famous sandwich is coming to New York, and it’s stirring things up (Between the Rye, Pastrami’s Canadian Rival – City Room Blog – NYTimes.com).
Whatever else is said in the article — and if you want to know the ins and outs of these two famous sandwiches, you should read it — I think that New York is lucky to have such a great addition to all the good food found there. Enjoy! (In moderation, of course. :)) If you are in the vicinity of a place that serves such a sandwich, I say: take a break and enjoy one.
