Katz’s Delicatessen Where Pastrami met Corned Beef

During my trip to New York City I had to go to Katz's Delicatessen , the place is iconic in Gotham, New Yorkers love that place, and it has been open so long that different family generations have been regulars of this Jewish place. Kosher style delicatessen opened in 1888, Bib Gourmand recognition from Michelin guide, their speciality the Pastrami sandwich, and as they say, “We are famous for the best sandwich in town”.

Most people remember the place thanks to one of my favourite films “When Harry Met Sally”, with the famous scene of the Meg Ryan’s fake orgasm. Also in Anthony Bourdain No Reservation episode “Dissapearing Manhattan” Tony stated that the prize of admission to Katz is that you love New York and you like pastrami.

Hope you have what she had... When Harry met Sally famous table

I didn’t have what she had, but I got the Pastrami sandwich. The sandwich was really good, the pastrami amazing, just simple but tasty food, not complicated, excellent meat on rye, and a touch of brown mustard.

The place

Pastrami sandwich reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Blood” where George tries to mix his two passions food and sex.

Jerry: So, the free love buffet is over?
George: I got greedy. Flew too close to the sun on wings of pastrami.
Jerry: Yeah, that's what you did...I can't believe I got another session with Izzy Mandelbaum, he's probably makes me box a kangaroo.
Jerry: What's going on?
George: I don't know. This sandwich is making me flush.
Jerry: Oh no, I'll tell you what you did Caligula; you combined food and sex in to one disgusting uncontrollable urge.
George: I think you're right. You gonna eat that?
Jerry: No, but please tell me that's all you're gonna do with it.
