Madison pastrami report, sadly brief

Stalzy’s is a new east-side deli that makes its deli meats in-house.  Stalzy’s pastrami is very good, but is not exactly pastrami.  It is, instead, what someone very skilled at making barbecue would make if someone gave them a recipe for pastrami.

Gotham Bagels remains the only real pastrami option, but I’m pretty sure they sell only by the sandwich, not by the pound.  Update:  Ben Tillman, in the comments, corrects me — Gotham does sell pastrami a la carte, at $18/lb.  So that’s next Passover taken care of.

Do not I repeat do not go to Ella’s.
