Katz’s Delicatessen is an iconic Jewish deli that has been around for a whopping 126 years. It opened in 1888 and has been serving up hand-carved pastrami and corned beef (and much more) ever since! We were in the mood for a hearty sandwich, so we decided to test out a delivery service called Postmates that will go to a restaurant or store, pick up whatever you want, and deliver to your door. Pretty sweet. In under an hour, we were enjoying pastrami & corned beef sammies along with hot dogs and homemade pickles from Katz’s Deli. To sum it up in one word: DELISH!!! The corned beef and pastrami are incredibly tender and flavorful — my personal fave is the corned beef (extra fatty, of course). Throw in some awesome pickles, the most amazing mustard I’ve ever tried, and a snappy hot dog on the side… Now that’s a darn good meal.
