Corned Beef and Pastrami Sandwich

Where to Find It:
Katz's Delicatessen
205 East Houston St
New York, NY 10002

In 1888, a Russian immigrant family established a deli on the Lower East Side of New York City. It was home to many newly emigrated families and the community became very close. Everyone knew that Katz's was the place to go for flavors of the Old World. Today that loyal following continues.

BITE Score Rating:

B (Bread) - Classic deli rye - no other bread will do.
I (Interior) - The best pastrami and corned beef I have ever had.
T (Taste) - It's extraordinary. No sandwich can compare to a Katz's sandwich.
E (Experience) - An experience unto itself.
