Katz's Deli Restaurant Review

: Opened in 1888, this landmark of a Jewish deli in the historic immigrant neighborhood of the Lower East Side is a mammoth caf├ęteria-style spot with the opportunity for great people-watching --- the famous scene in "When Harry Met Sally" was filmed here. Vintage signs adorn the walls with outdated slogans like, "Send a Salami to Your Boy in the Army." You can get table service, but the most authentic way to go here is to take a ticket at the door, which employees at the counter punch with the prices as you order things to eat. Our recommendations: the grilled hot dogs and the hand-sliced corned beef that's as lean --- and as good --- as it gets.
