Don't Even Think About It!
Welcome to world famous (Where Harry Met Sally) Katz's Delicatessen! ("I'll have what she's having.") Sure, this is down the road (Houston) a piece from Greenwich Village proper, but seeing how it fits in with this blog's general theme of sadly disappearing Manhattan, it fits my bill.
This was taken inside Katz's one spring day. This waiter seems to be saying, "You want salami? You gotta go through me first." Easier to move down the line and get a nice egg cream, or one of Katz's famous pickles.
Word has it that Katz's has sold their building, fitting in nicely with the gentrification of the lower east side. Head back to the Village. We'll be there tomorrow, bright and early!
