Katz's Deli

The next morning, a couple of us headed down to Kat'z Deli on the Lower East Side for some Jewish deli goodness. Opened in 1888, Katz's is a New York institution. It's also the site where "the famous scene" from When Harry Met Sally was filmed. One of the most overrated films in history, but I'll save that diatribe for another time.

In line. You go in through a turnstile, and take a ticket. Be sure not to lose it, or you'll be $50 lighter in the wallet. Order your food and they'll write down the price on the ticket. You pay when you leave.

Potato Knish $2.75

One of the things I had to do on this trip was to try a knish. Now what is a knish you ask? According to Wikipedia, a knish is an "Eastern European snack food popular in Jewish communities. A knish consists of a filling covered with dough that is either baked or fried." That said, the knish wasn't very good, but never having had one, I don't know if it was just this knish or knishes in general. The crust was too hard, the mashed potatoes too dense, and the filling needed more salt though it was seasoned too pungently with a peculiar spice.

Matzoh Ball Soup

One of my friends ordered this, and she said it was good.

Pastrami on Rye ~$12.75

Now for the main course. It's hard to tell from this picture, but this sandwich is HUGE. The amount of meat is overwhelming, and I had the hardest time keeping the slices from falling onto the plate. The pastrami was great - juicy, nicely flavored, and not too salty. I did take issue, however, with the meat to bread ratio. There was just way too much meat! I would have been quite pleased if I had 2 more slices of rye to go with it. The sandwich was good, but not mind-blowing.

Blogger Sony Ericsson Takes Over Title said...

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
