Even pre-midday the place is full and by the time we left, there was a queue out the door for lunch. I could make a few 'I'll have what she's having' references but since Katz's was opened for almost 100 years before that film, it's totally necessary.

Katz's pastrami on rye is a thing of beauty. At $14 it's not the cheapest sandwich in the city but my, that is a lot of meat for one sandwich. Warm and tender and with a peppery crust, it sets the standard on how pastrami should be made and served. The accompanying vanilla egg cream was too sweet for my taste (too much syrup) but that's a minor point when the meat is this good.
