Deli Sandwiches!

Please, the age old question - - Carnegie's or Katz's. We've got family coming in and they want the "best"!

  1. Katz's. 2nd Avenue Deli RIP.

    1. Katz's pastrami rules.

      See this possibly related thread (best Italian Hero sandwich in Manhattan) for more sandwichy goodness:

      1. Thirded on Katz's. Their pastrami is killer - my husband and I typically share one sandwich between the 2 of us! We pair it with a knish and some Dr Brown's soda and mmmmmmm. :)

          I nearly forgot! If you eat at Katz's, tip the guy making your sandwich. He'll give you a nice slab of pastrami to nibble on while you wait for him to finish his work.

        2. I think for pastrami or corned beef, Carnegie is better.

          1. I would certainly cast my vote for Katz's.
