Note: Everyone is complaining about not being able to make reservations! this restaurant belongs to Ralph Lauren. The Polo Bar opened last year next to their Polo shop in Midtown Manhattan, New York city. They do not allow walk-ins. I definitely recommend going early for a drink. (The bar can only be accessed if you have a dinner reservation). The food is just okay but you definitely come to here for the experience. I called it ”Old School New York Fabulous”

Katz’s Delicatessen Since 1888

 

Cuisine: Delis, Sandwiches

Neighborhood: Lower East Side

Occasion: Good for lunch, late night snack

Famous Dishes: Pastrami Sandwich, Brisket Sandwich, Matzo ball soup

History From Restaurant: In 1888, a small deli by the name of Iceland Brothers was established on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side by the Iceland brothers. Upon the arrival of Willy Katz in 1903, the name of the store was officially changed to “Iceland & Katz”. Willy’s cousin Benny joined him in 1910, buying out the Iceland brothers to officially form Katz’s Delicatessen. Their landsman Harry Tarowsky bought into the partnership in April 1917. Katz’s Deli was moved across the street, to its present location, during the construction of the subway system. The vacant lot on Houston Street (pronounced “House-ton” after a Dutch emigrant of the same name) was home to barrels of meat and pickles until the present storefront facade was added between 1946-49.

Famous Dish: Sebastian’s Steakhouse Burger caramelized onions, cheese, pickle and fries $12

I heard so much good things about this place’s burger for a long time. Some of peoples said to me this place has the best burger in New York.  WOW! I thought………. I’m sorry but burger was not good😞 I ordered Kale salad to share and two other sandwiches. I normally love Kale salad but this salad was so boring and no flavor. I was very disappointed chicken sandwich also. I’m going to give a another chance for burger just because too many foodies told me how awesome their burger is!! Stay tuned for my second patrolling report 🚓🍴 🍔

2nd Ave Deli

2nd Ave Deli

2nd Ave Deli since 1954

 

Cuisine: Jewish deli, Kosher

Neighborhood: Midtown East, Murray Hill

Famous dishes: Pastrami Sandwich. Matzo ball soup. 3 Decker Sandwiches.

Occasions: I was here for lunch with friend. Good for lunch.

Style & Decor: Diner

The 2nd Ave Deli opened in 1954 on the second avenue in East Village. Original location closed in 2005 and reopened one in Upper East Side and one in Murray Hill. A waitress told me this location opened in 2008. 2nd Ave Deli is a one of iconic deli of New York City. I had checked of some of other famous delis in city, pastrami sandwich at Katz’s and Bagels and lox at Russ & Daughters. Carnegie Deli is my next stop but they’re temporarily closed right now, scheduled to reopen on next month.

Me and my friend Lord of the forks were here for lunch to try Pastrami and Brisket sandwiches. Result of patrolling: We both thought Pastrami was better than Brisket. Also Katz’s Pastrami and Brisket are both better than 2nd Ave Deli. BUT like I said this place is Bucket List so you should definitely try their sandwiches while you are in New York.
