We are damned apikorism (boldface mine):
It is possible to wander into Harry & Ida’s Meat and Supply Co., a delicatessen and provisions shop that opened in June in the East Village, with expectations of nothing more than a good pastrami sandwich.
That sandwich is the obvious draw. Its slabs of meat are cut as thick as the September issue of Vogue.
That’s not a fucking pastrami sandwich, that’s a pastrami steak. The meat is supposed to be sliced thin, a couple of millimeters at most.
I’ve experienced this a lot at ‘nouveau kosher-style’ delis. It sucks. Stop it.
