Just months into business, Huntington’s Five High Marketplace – located at 5 High Street – has been dubbed the “best pastrami on Long Island,” by one enthusiastic Redditor.

“After years of bemoaning the loss of the original Pastrami King in Queens, I’ve come across one that’s pretty damn close. Outstanding,” they wrote on the LongIsland Eats subreddit

At Five High, $22.95 will get you the “Outrageous Pastrami Sandwich,” 14 ounces of thick cut, New York-style pastrami served warm on soft rye bread with “just the right amount of mustard.”

“I’m not exaggerating by saying that it was near perfect,” the happy customer continued. “I live nearby, but I’d drive from anywhere on Long Island for it!”

Equally impressed was Tony O., of Medford, whose glowing Yelp review praised Five High for opting for thicker cuts of pastrami that’s “so tender.”

“...this one was eye opening. Tender, flavorful with plenty of speck,” he said. “Sure, there’s a ton of food opportunities in Huntington, but if you’re looking for an honest pastrami sandwich, this place gets my thumbs up!”

Five High Marketplace opened in early December 2023 in the former home of Crossroads Marketplace. 

In addition to rave-worthy pastrami, the business sells convenience store staples like chips, candy, and fruit, as well as several signature sandwiches, all-day breakfast offerings, and a salad bar.

Its menu also features fresh pressed juices, smoothies, and coffee, as well as gluten-free options.

Five High Marketplace is open daily. Find out more on its website.
