The livingston deli also makes a great one. I've only seen them as double deckers, and would agree about the jewish and northeastern jersey parts, too. my boyfriend's catholic and said he'd never seen them til he met my family...he calls them jewish sloppy joes.

I'm not sure it's a North Jersey thing as much as it is a Millburn, NJ thing. http://midnightsnack.wordpress.com/sandwich-joints/northeast/new-jersey/milburn/milburn-deli/ http://www.millburndeli.com/ I've eaten one at the Millburn Deli. OK, I ate a large *part* of one before it defeated me.

maybe it's a north jersey jewish thing.. the sandwich is usually a double decker though, i think the other layer is turkey. Whenever any of my relatives died we always received huge platters of these from the local delis. They are super tasty.

I went to a deli in East Hampton last summer and got a sandwich that was called Southampton. It had ham, swiss, slaw, and ranch dressing- it was AMAZING! I try to make it all the time but its never the same!

I'm from New Jersey and I've never heard of this! I'm from South Jersey, I'm guessing it's a North Jersey/New York thing.
Happy Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day!
