Food,Glorious Food: Katz’s Delicatessen New York: Best Pastrami and Reuben Sandwich in the World!



Katz’s Delicatessen New York: Best Pastrami in the World!

Pastrami and Fake Orgasms go hand in hand at the most famous delicatessen in the world

Katz’s Deli as cameoed in the 1989 romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.

They make a great pastrami sandwich and have built their reputation purely on quality, longevity was inevitable. It’s how they prepare it, cure it, cook it and slice it. It was started in 1888 yes more than a century ago as a small deli by the name of Iceland Brothers which was then changed to Iceland and Katz when Willy Katz joined the business in 1903 and then formally Katz’s Delicatessen in 1910 when the Kat’s bought out the Iceland Brothers. Eventually in 1988 without any heirs the remaining family members sold the business to restauranteur Martin Dell and currently his son Jake runs the business.

Each day this legendary deli serves as many as 4000 visitors from around the world who get to feast on pastrami, corned beef, brisket on a different level.

There are 7 butcher stations so choose the shortest line to get served. From their menu we highly recommend their Hot Pastrami on Rye and their Reuben sandwich, the servings size is massive and one sandwich could easily fill 2 adults, but it was so damn good and after the long waiting time we each wolfed one down.
