Katz’s Delicatessen

6 Love It
Lower East Side
This cavernous cafeteria is a repository of New York history—glossies of celebs spanning the past century crowd the walls, and the classic Jewish deli offerings are nonpareil. Start with a crisp-skinned, all-beef hot dog for just $3.10. Then flag down a meat cutter and order a legendary sandwich. The brisket sings with horseradish, and the thick-cut pastrami stacked high between slices of rye is the stuff of dreams. Everything tastes better with a glass of the hoppy house lager; if you’re on the wagon, make it a Dr. Brown’s.

Very much so a deli style restaurant. I would suggest to not go during peak hours, as this is very popular and it can be hard to get a table. The knishes and matzo ball soup are my favorites! (The matzo ball soup has a giant matzo ball - the size of a baseball)!

Amazing food! Obviously a must visit if visiting NYC. I recommend sharing...the pastrami sandwich is HUGE! Go during the week or off peak hours.
