Magnificent ambiance and robust flavors collide at Rare Form, exploding into a glorious fireball of pure deli deliciousness that you can find pressed between two crispy slices of bread — or, if you prefer, waffles. Every tongue-tantalizing morsel was perfect, from the juicy pastrami to the crisp pork belly. Their cocktails were sleek and bold, creative but not overcomplicated. The portions are big, the prices are low, and the inviting Old World ambience is just as outstanding as the food. Nestled in the East Village right next to Petco Park, this is a perfect spot for a filling meal, a romantic date, or a rendezvous in the new, hidden rooftop bar!
