New York icon Katz’s Deli is expanding after 128 years
Thank you VICE for the wonderful piece!!
One of the last relics of Jewish immigrant culture on the Lower East Side, the 128-year-old Katz’s now shares the neighborhood with fashionable hotels and pricey boutiques but is still a major tourist magnet in its own right. Locals and out-of-towners alike shuffle through the cafeteria-like lines in the massive wood-paneled dining room, plastered with celebrity photos and thank-you letters and old signs (one for the deli’s World War II promotional campaign, “Send a Salami to Your Boy in the Army,” dangles from the ceiling). It’d be easy to write Katz’s off as past its prime, but it has legions of loyal fans.

The Katz's out of the bag.
The world famous deli known for its colossal corned beef and pastrami sandwiches is expanding to Downtown Brooklyn.
-NY Daily News
The venerable Lower East Side deli proves it’s about more than just pastrami, with its hot dog being voted No. 1 in the U.S.
What you must try when dining at Katz’s is either its corned beef or pastrami sandwiches or platters. The meat is cured using a slow cook method without injecting chemicals, water, or any other additives to speed up the process. While it may take up to 30 days to cure the meat, the final product is well worth it, making this deli a standout in the community.
In a culture where culinary fads arrive and pass quickly, Katz’s proves that the deli remains alive and well. It is family-run, steeped in history, standing on a menu that is impervious to trends and refuses to change. Its loyal following has everything to do with integrity and very, very little to do with that time that Meg Ryan threw her head back and made some noises.
