New York: Pastrami and Katz’s Delicatessen

November 5, 2014

New chapter of New York. If you are in Manhattan, a must is to visit (as a tourist or as a pastrami lover) Katz’s Delicatessen. This old restaurant, placed at 205 Houston Street, is well-known due to its pastrami sandwiches.

Inside, big queue but quick service. Functional place, with an open space including as much tables as possible, plenty of people at lunch time, with salami hanging on the wall  and clear options of sandwiches written at one side, where you make your order.

And, of course, we chose the Pastrami sandwich. Generous quantity of good pastrami (it was difficult to bit the sandwich!) between 2 slices of bread. Mustard as company. Summarizing: good enough, but not a delicatessen in the way we understand “delicatessen” in spanish. But we enjoy it!

About the price, 20 dollars! A high price in our opinion but it seems there is a reason for this. (see the explanation  here )


And, 0f course, the table of Sally and Harry:


As a curiosity, the water (brand Katz’s Delicatessen) includes the slogan “Send a salami to your boy in the Army”, remembering ancient times.

And about  ticket you get when you take your sandwich: Don’t loose it! You need it to pay and to go out of Katz’s.
