The Pastramipocalypse is Real

Kosher Nosh

Due to increasing brisket prices, pastrami is apparently seemingly in “crisis” according to a report by the New York Times. Drought affecting cattle inventory, the influx of brisket barbecue restaurants and even fast food — Arby’s sells it now — is putting a strain on menus across the region as the meat isn’t strictly part of local Jewish cuisine anymore.

For some insight on how this is affecting Bergen County, pricing from three randon restaurants serving traditional Kosher or Kosher-style pastrami sandwiches are as follows: Foster Village in Bergenfield ($8.69), Kosher Nosh in Glen Rock ($12.50) and Nosher Rye in Allendale ($8.95).
