Sandwiches

Many of NYC's most famed culinary contributions have seemingly been surpassed: foldable slices of street pizza have been displaced by Neapolitan offerings at the top of the pie pyramid, and some local restaurants have even taken to shipping their bagels down from Montreal. But one place that has remained steadfast through any and every crazy is Katz's, which has been serving delicious & classic pastrami, corned beef, and turkey sandwiches to New Yorkers, celebrities, and tourists alike since 1888. It's won titles like the Manliest Sandwich Shop in America, Best Hot Dog in NY, and New York's Grandest Deli. Customers receive a paper ticket upon entering and order at the counter, where butchers quickly mark down prices and sling meats onto cafeteria-style trays. Sample cuts before committing to a sandwich, but once you do you better stock up on napkins and grab a seat. Don't lost that ticket! You may have to pay a fine to leave the restaurant.
