This is the second year in a row Ben’s has taken home this heavenly, mouth-watering crown. Deservedly so. There’s little that comes close to a heaping wall of thin-sliced pastrami stacked between two pieces of rye, its top half slathered in mustard and served with a crisp, juicy pickle. Ben’s knows how to make ‘em right: fresh, sliced to order, accompanied by everything from chopped liver and beef tongue Polonaise to Nova Scotia Salmon and homemade stuffed derma.
