After years of yearning, I finally made it out to the iconic Katz's Deli the day after Christmas. My friend and I were undertaking a NYC food tour, and our first stop was Katz's. We arrived at around 10:45, so it wasn't too busy. Still most tables were occupied, but we were able to place our orders right away. My friend ordered a pastrami sandwich and I ordered a pastrami reuben.
Immediately after ordering (to go, by the way), the server placed a plate of pastrami to sample! We tried it and were immediately hooked the tender, flavor-filled slices of hot pastrami.
So we got our sandwiches and then paid our bill. This is the only knock on Katz's. Two sandwiches cost us almost $45!
I will go back one day (perhaps on my next food tour) and try the corned beef. I just need to save up for it.
