Since I’m traveling this week (still in Munich), today’s Daily Escape is a stalwart favorite right in my own backyard — Katz’s Deli. Yes, it’s full of tourists, and yes, it’s not cheap, but it still has one of the best Pastrami sandwiches in the city. The food is consistent and delicious, and the staff can be snarky (but it’s all part of the charm). The Savvy Insider Tip is to go to Katz’s for breakfast to avoid the crowds, but you’ll still have access to the complete menu.
As our friends over at the Gothamist recently said, “Don’t go on the weekend, and don’t tell the man behind the counter, ‘I’ll have what she’s having,’ for the love of God.”
