We had to make it down to both Russ and Daughters and Katz's Deli in the LES, as they are both New York landmarks and was told they could not to be missed. We started first at Katz's Deli and you can see that everything about the place, the people, the service is completely old school, New York style diner. We came to get their specialty, the Pastrami and thank god I did not miss this stop. I will probably come here on every single NY trip for the rest of eternity, just such a classic done right.
