    Katz's Delicatessen Pastrami on Rye

    Jews love food. We love to eat it, we love to talk about it, and we love to argue about who makes it best. And of all the foods Jews love to debate, nothing is quite like authentic Jewish deli. Whether you’re getting together with family and friends, or you’re craving comfort food just like Bubbie used to make, nothing beats Jewish deli. And nothing beats these eight spots from around the country – from old school to hipster vibes, here are the best delis around. Hope you’re hungry.

    1Katz’s Delicatessen (New York, NY)

    For New Yorkers, Katz’s means deli. In business since 1888, it’s a mainstay of Lower East Side life, and a popular destination for hungry visitors. It was featured in the movie When Harry Met Sally when Meg Ryan showed Billy Crystal how much she “enjoyed” her sandwich. So, if you’ll “have what she’s having,” go check it out. If you can’t make it in person, don’t worry, Katz’s sells its world-famous pastrami, corned beef, and other classics online, and ships nationwide.
