2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)i don't see the big deal about katz's. i've only been once, and i probably wouldn't go again. $15 for a pastrami sandwhich? Ok, maybe if it was amazing pastrami, but I've had much better in nj for less than 10 bucks.
(joe lefko from nj)
A line from one of my favorite books -- the Great American Baseball Card Trading, Flipping and Bubble-gum Book, goes, "If Rochester was New York City, then Steve Bilko would be in the Hall of Fame. But it isn't. And he isn't."

Katz's is an NYC institution that's been around for, like, 120 years, and it's a crucial part of the Lower East Side's history. Going there is a completely different experience than your New Jersey deli, no matter how good the latter is. Yes, it's pricey, but the anticipation, the ticket system and the nosh - where the cutter gives you a few scraps of meat to chow on while he makes your sandwich - make it a unique experience.

Plus the portions are huge and the half-sour pickles are awesome. You don't wanna go there? Fine, that's just one fewer bum in line ahead of me. (Jay Jaffe)
