Katz's Delicatessen Review
Everything and nothing has changed at Katz's since it first opened in 1888, when the neighborhood was dominated by Jewish immigrants. The rows of Formica tables, the long self-service counter, and such signs as "Send a salami to your boy in the army" are all completely authentic. The lines still form on the weekends for giant, succulent hand-carved corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, soul-warming soups, juicy hot dogs, and crisp half-sour pickles. Week nights are more laid back. You'll get a ticket when you walk in and then get it punched at the various stations where you pick up your food; don't lose your ticket or you'll have to pay the lost ticket fee.
