a bite of heaven

Whenever I’ve journeyed to New York, I generally make sure to do two things:

1. Go to The Met

2. Have a pastrami sandwich at Katz’s Delicatessen.

Since my favorite exhibits at the museum are closed for renovation UNTIL 2009 (yes, I just screamed), that leaves me with Katz’s as a must-do. Happily, of course. Others have highly praised competing delis, namely 2nd Avenue, Carnegie, and Stage Delis, but I sure as holy heck know I’ll be sorely disappointed. This one sandwich, I can safely say, is in my top ten favorite dishes. Top five, even. The word “pastrami” originated from the Yiddish word “pastrame” for pressed, cured meat and to this wandering gentile, it is heaven.
