Katz Deli & Russ and Daughters

Katz's Deli (205 East Houston Street, New York)
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.

Pickles: The acid is very much needed to balance the pastrami.

Russ and Daughters (179 East Houston Street, NY)
After Katz, we headed a couple doors down to Russ and Daughters. I am a salmon lover and they are known for their high quality lox and smoked salmon in many variations. We were guided to get the Nova, which is a smoked salmon but less salty, more mild in flavour but incredibly fatty and succulent. The salmon was incredibly fresh, luscious and delicious.
