Do not forget this classic venue. Servings are much bigger then expected. It is worth to wait for a sit.

Having lived in Montreal for 4 years some time ago, I have been to Schwartz's hundreds of times. Now it's only an occasional treat when I happen to be back in Montreal, but it continues to be delicious. Best smoked meat around, for sure! Try...More

It's no Katz in NY, but it's a solid pastrami. I took mine to go and it was still good after a few hours...Their pickles were delicious too so get one of those also.

Even thought this is not owned by the original owners anymore, they did a good job keeping it all original as far as I can remember. The sandwich is still simple and delicious. Keep in mind tho that you might get stuck on a big...More
