I am not the first. I definitely won't be the last. But, experiencing an institution like Katz Deli for the first time was amazing.
From the insane line lead by their own security to the first slap of a piece of pastrami on a plate for you to taste you know you are in for a gut busting hour of power. I got the reuben styled pastrami. Hot pastrami with melted swiss, kraut, and homemade russian dressing on rye. Add a little spicy mustard and heaven has arrived. The half-sour pickles are great, but I am going for full sour next time, more pickle, less cuke.
Amazing food. Historic atmosphere and just a classic New York experience.
