Russell Street Deli

Russell Street Deli is our go-to sandwich spot and one of the best lunch options around Eastern Market. They serve all of the deli greatest hits, but the pastrami is why you come here. In case you’re looking for something lighter, they also have multiple vegetarian sandwiches, like the avocado melt and vegan Coney Island dog, along with a few soups that are made fresh daily.
