Chef Will Horowitz of Ducks Eatery spent years piecing together his grandfather's pastrami recipe, but he's not chained to tradition.
Horowitz slices his pastrami thicker than a reasonable man might, and he pairs it with an anchovy-Meyer lemon mustard, a forest of dill, and Japanese cucumbers fermented in buttermilk with rye berries and caraway seeds. The result is, in Serrini's words, "the world's best sandwich."
Vegetarians, look away—this is a testament to the Gospel of Meat, and it is magnificent. Check out the video below and see the rest of the series over on Serrini's Vimeo page. Want to try the sandwich yourself? You can find it on the restaurant's late night menu from around 11:30 p.m. until closing.
