When in New York, go to Katz Delicatessen

East Village

205 East Houston Street

Started in 1888, this family owned deli has since become a part of New York City’s culture and history. The deli’s slogan “Send a Salami To Your Boy In the Army” came about when the three sons of the owners were serving in the military and were sent food as a family tradition. Passed from one generation to the next, Katz deli has gone from a place where the neighborhood gathered on Fridays, to a deli serving sandwiches to tourists flocking in from all parts of the world.  

Most famously known for its pastrami sandwiches, among other food items on their extensive menu, Katz is sure to be a meat lover’s paradise. The deli cures their beef over a period of 30 days, to ensure a high quality of meat. In addition to the must try mouth watering pastrami sandwich, they also offer plump, powdered sugar crepes generously stuffed with cheese, juicy hot dogs, and many other items that are sure to satisfy your cravings. 

Katz has had many appearances on films and television shows, including an appearance in the 1989 romantic comedy “When Harry Met Sally”. So if you’re feeling carnivorous and want an insta worthy photo with a huge sandwich from the best deli in the city, head down to Katz!
