Once representing the accumulated heritage of the stretch of Second Avenue known as the Yiddish Broadway, and reportedly expelled from its original home by escalating real estate prices, the venerable Second Avenue Deli has set down in an obscure corner of Murray Hill. A quick check of the only thing that matters to me-the pastrami and corned beef-found that the former remained mild and tasty, the latter well-textured and slightly more interesting. Both are sliced-by machine, and inferior to versions offered at Katz's. But how long can Katz's survive?
