Deep fried pickles and pastrami with sauerkraut

We went to Manhattan for Thanksgiving, planning nearly our entire trip around where we wanted to eat, what specialty markets we wanted to peruse, whether to have the 3 foot high corned beef sandwich at Katz's or the 2.5 foot high one at Carnegie deli. In our current country bumpkin status living on Martha's Vineyard, with a measly handful of restaurants to choose from (at least this time of year, but pretty much all year really if your talking about the good AND affordable ones), we are giddy in the city. Ha! That just came to me!

But really, I was so overwhelmed I didn't take many pictures of my food, which is so UNLIKE me! Luckily, I did get one shot which is so far my favorite food picture I've ever taken... it's a single deep fried pickle wrapped around pastrami, served on a plate of sauerkraut at the 5 Napkin Burger in Manhattan (Upper West Side I think we were)... it sounded fascinating and tasted pretty good, actually... but boy was it dreamy looking there on the plate...
