Do you guys remember the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally, in which Sally did her famous “faking-it” scene? And one woman goes “I’ll have what she’s having.” Well, this was filmed at Katz Delicatessen in New York. This deli was opened in 1888 and to this day, remains a popular restaurant amongst locals, tourists (like us), politicians, and celebrities.
We had the opportunity to visit Katz during both of our visits to New York in 2007 and 2008. Daniel swears that this is by far the best pastrami he’s ever tasted, and I myself, am not a fan of pastrami, but after taking my first bite, I was convinced that pastrami is my friend. The meat is extremely moist and tender, with a hint of smokiness.
To make a long story short, we received an overnight package from our friend in New York, who sent us a whopping 4.5 lbs of pastrami as our wedding gift. Obviously, there is no way we can eat this in one sitting, as we’d be asking for a massive heart attack. So we’ve decided to eat it little by little and squirrel the rest away for a rainy day. We love Katz Deli!
