Time Out says

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 less than a fiver. Then flag down a meat cutter and order one of the legendary sandwiches. 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.

Time Out tip: The When Harry Met Sally table is labeled in the center of the restaurant. Snag it if you can.
