Back in 2020, Lincroft-based kosher-style deli Pastrami House opened up in the Mile Square. Serving up corned beef, brisket, pastrami rolls, matzo ball soup, and more, this Jewish deli quickly became a local favorite on Washington Street. Although the restaurant hasn’t officially confirmed its closure, locals have been noticing that this spot has not been open, hinting at a closure. Read on for what we know about the closing and what we will miss about Pastrami House, located at 832 Washington Street in Hoboken.
The Closing + About Pastrami House
Although the Pastrami House closing has not been officially confirmed by the restaurant, the website is no longer working and customers cannot order online anymore through Seamless or GrubHub. We will keep you updated as more details unfold.
This kosher-style deli opened back in January 2020 at 832 Washington Street, taking over the former Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries. The deli was named after one of its most beloved dishes — pastrami bread. The Berkely Heights and Lincroft locations of Pastrami House are also closed, but there is another location in Jackson Township that is still open.
The spot served up signature pastrami sandwiches on rye bread, corned beef, and featured a knish and salad bar. Pastrami House also specialized in foods like matzo ball soup, stuffed cabbage, and noodle kugel. Other options included pastrami egg rolls, stromboli, daily hashes, mini Ruebens, knishes, Latkas, stuffed peppers with prosciutto and provolone, and so much more. Customers were also able to buy corned beef, brisket, beef tongue, salami, turkey breast, and even some cheeses by the pound.
Although Pastrami House is now closed, you can still get your Jewish deli fix in Jersey City at Hank Schwartz’s Delicatessen and Appetizing, a pop-up deli that works out of a ghost kitchen. This summer, you can find Hank Schwartz’s at the Riverview Farmers Market on the first and third Sundays of each month.
Other deli options in the area include Luca Brasi’s at 100 Park Avenue, Losurdo Brothers Italian Deli + Bakery at 410 2nd Street, Rosticeria Da Gigi at 916 Washington Street, the old-school Fiore’s at 414 Adams Street, and Vito’s Deli at 806 Washington Street A — just to name a few.
