    It sounds like "broad" to me, but that doesn't make any sense. You had better wait for an American opinion.

    Still British, but it sounds to me like two words run together: 'pastrami is the main draw at...'. (A 'draw' in this sense is something that makes you want to go there).

    Yes, it sounds like 'draw' to me too.

    Absolutely: the main draw at New York's Katz's Deli.

    The main attraction - why people like to come to Katz's Deli (which is in New York).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
