Katz Deli

Despite Katz’s humble beginnings and modest décor, no one can take a trip to NYC without an authentic deli experience.

by Catherine Hamilton

As far as delis go, everyone knows that Katz holds the title for the best signature city sandwiches, juicy frankfurters, the Rueben and the hot pastrami sandwich on rye. Opened in 1888 and family-run for over 100 years, you are pretty much guaranteed the best sandwich of your life at this city institution. Countless movie scenes and famous visitors come together at Katz, including Seinfeld. You can read more about the Dutch immigrants, the Iceland Brothers, who founded this legendary delicatessen.
