Jonathan's Worldly Eats: Confessions of a Foodie - Katz's Delicatessen

JonathansWorldlyEats | Jan 5, 2010 10:02 PM

If you don't already know about Katz's Deli, where have you been for the last 120+ years? Katz's is the home of melt in your mouth pastrami that is dripping in savory juices, hastily but masterfully cut, enveloped in a classified blend of seasonings, and proudly displayed on fresh rye with a smear of golden spicy mustard. Founded in 1888, Katz's Deli is one of the last remaining sites of Old New York in every imaginable sense. The recipes, the decor, the service, and especially the grunge have not been altered in any form or fashion. The one exception: the prices. But $14 is a steal of a deal for a sandwich which can easily be counted as two meals, especially in Manhattan.

A complete meal at Katz's consists of: Hot Pastrami on Rye (light on the mustard), Dr. Brown's Black Cherry Soda, French Fries (ask for hot ones or you will not get them), and tons of Half Sour Pickles... Mmmmm~
