Critic Reviews

The New York Times star Critic's Pick 05/30/07

At few other restaurants can you feel that you've stepped this surely into a living museum, a patch of urban mythology. - Frank Bruni

It doesn't hurt that these products are the best available, as are the frankfurters, knockwurst, knishes and other Jewish deli staples. The ritual of interacting with the countermen is one of the great New York experiences. - Steven A. Shaw

Time Out New York Critic's Pick  

This cavernous cafeteria is a repository of New York history - glossies of celebs spanning the past century crowd the walls, and the classic Jewish deli offerings...

Second Review for this one, had to go back a year later. This time I ordered from the counter and the service was better, I got to taste before I ordered and when I said I don't mind fat I got exactly what I was looking for. A juicy, salty, briny, perfect mix of fat to lean sandwich that was both satisfying and memorable for all the same reasons.

you aren't a true new yorker until you've eaten pastrami at katz's. if you put a dollar in the tip jar, you'll magically wind up with a larger sandwich. the matzah ball soup goes well with the sandwich.
