Reuben Sandwich
Katz Deli's infamous Reuben Sandwich

Katz Deli is arguably one of New York City's best delis and certainly one of New York's most famous delis. Since it opened in 1888, Katz Deli has survived three depressions, numerous recessions and two World Wars. You can find out more about the history of this New York establishment on their website.

Katz Deli is famous for their Rueben Sandwich, piled high with corned beef, Swiss cheese, Russian, and Sauerkraut - absolutely delicious. No visit to New York City would be complete without reveling in the signature sandwich at this New York institution.

In addition to the great Reuben, Katz Deli also offers a good selection of bagels, burgers, other sandwiches and noshes - much like your would expect at any great New York deli. Check out what Katz Deli has to offer here.

Katz Deli does offer a good beer selection, along with egg creams and special sodas (like Dr Brown's Cel-Ray), however there is no wine on the menu.

Visiting Katz Deli isn't just about the Reuben Sandwich. When you step into Katz Deli, you'll be stepping into history and dining at the very tables where the likes of Barbra Streisand, Kathleen Turner, Bruce Willis and Dan Aykroyd have dined.

Katz Deli will also probably feel very familiar - that's because it was the set for Meg Ryan's famous moans in 'When Harry Met Sally'. Johnny Depp also had a silver screen meeting at Katz Deli when he met up with his FBI contact in Donnie Brasco.
