TRAVEL AND LEISUREPastrami and corned beef must be affected by the water in New York because they never seem to taste the same anywhere else in the world. The Jewish/kosher style and kosher delis in New York are unmatched anywhere.
Many people are of the opinion that any establishment with a sign that says “Deli” is kosher. While there are quality kosher restaurants throughout New York with a heavy concentration in the garment district, there are numerous iconic eateries that only appear to be so.
Established in 1888 on the Lower East Side, Katz’s is arguably the most famous kosher-style eatery in the city. Politicians, going all the way back to Harry S Truman (yes, there is no period after the “S” because he actually only had an initial) have made a pilgrimage to be photographed chomping on a hot dog or knish.
