I have not been to Schwartz's in a long time.
in the video age , Ive seen the place featured on various travel/eating shows
looks like the same stuff.
and yes to the medium fat. I used to get the platter , sit at the counter , and then waddle off
survived , well before statins became main stream.
I should count my blessings that Montreal Hot Smoked Meat is not available locally
far far superior to any pastrami of the NYC variety Ive ever had.
even in NYC.
