• Kosher-Style Deli ‘The Pastrami House’ Coming to Hoboken

    Written by:

    Now we can almost officially say the Mile Square’s restaurant repertoire is just about complete, especially if you’re talking pastrami on rye. A kosher-style deli called The Pastrami House is on its way, Hoboken! The Lincroft, New Jersey-based delicatessen is taking over a vacant spot at 832 Washington Street, the former Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries {which was supposed to become Brooklyn Bagelry}, opening its second location in NJ.

    According to Jersey Digs, the Pastrami House joins a host of famous and fan-favorite delis throughout Mile Square. {After all, if you’ve lived in Hoboken for more than a day then you know just how big a deal mutz aka mozzarella is!} There’s Luca Brasi‘s on Park Avenue, Losurdo Brothers Italian Deli on 2nd, Rosticceria Da Gigi uptown, the old-school Fiore‘s on 4th and Adams, and Vito’s + Son on Washington — just to name a few. And of course, who can forget that earlier this year Mile Square lost a legendary deli — Frans — which will soon be reopening as a Jersey Mikes?

    That being said, the more the merrier and it looks like Pastrami House is onto Hoboken and its unbridled love for delis. The Pastrami House will serve signature pastrami sandwiches on rye bread, corned beef, and feature a knish and salad bar. But that’s not all.

    In addition to specializing in kosher foods like matzo ball soup, stuffed cabbage, and noodle kugel, the deli is also named after one of its most beloved dishes: Pastrami Bread {we know, WUUUT}.

    Beyond pastrami bread, Pastrami House also makes pastrami egg rolls, stromboli, daily hashes, mini Rubens, knishes, Latkas, stuffed peppers with prosciutto and provolone, and so much more.

    Not to mention, meat can also be bought by the pound at Pastrami. Everything from corned beef, brisket, beef tongue, salami, turkey breast, and even some cheeses can be purchased in bulk, by the pound. A Jewish deli dream, that’s for sure.

    Savory isn’t the only flavor Pastrami House can do, FYI — they also do sweet! According to their Lincroft menu, patrons will also find black-and-white cookies, blintzes, rugelach, rice pudding, lindser tarts, and other various cookies and cakes.

    Now that we’ve got the menu out of the way, you might remember that another business was actually slated to take over the former Boardwalk spot. That biz was originally supposed to be The Brooklyn Bagelry, which was all set to put in an outpost until the company went out of business as a whole. #RIPBrooklynBagelry.

    Since BB fell through, things with Jersey-based Pastrami House have been happening fairly quickly. The Historic Preservation Committee approved signage for the new spot on their July 22nd meeting and old BB signs still need to come down. And while there’s no word yet as to when Pastrami will open its doors to pastrami- and matzo-ball-soup loving locals, we have a feeling it will happen sooner rather than later!
