2000 BEST Sandwich, Deli

Zaftigs Delicatessen

Oy vey, they’re not supposed to make corned beef or pastrami this good outside of the Lower East Side. Despite the high prices and yuppie decor, Zaftigs is as close as you’ll get in Boston to the traditional Jewish deli experience. Save yourself the trip to New York and head to Brookline for great sandwiches, gelfite fish, chipped liver, and other classics of the genre.
