Village Voice's Description

Visit this century-old deli before they decide to raze it and build a high-rise condo. Tip the carvers $1 before you order and get a sandwich big enough for two; a great choice is a combo of pastrami and corned beef on a club roll. If you know what's good for you, order it lean. The preferred beverage is Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray, a celery tonic that's a Lower East Side favorite.

    Pastrami On Rye With Brown Mustard: A thing of unparalleled beauty. Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations

  • Travel Channel on 11/15/10

    Try the pastrami or the hot dogs. Katz's is a landmark eatery that's been serving up delicious meats since 1888.

    Possibly the most famous NYC food landmark, this Jewish deli excels in each dish, from snappy hot dogs to giant pastrami sandwiches. Hint: don't forget to tip your carver!
