New York
Since 1888, Katz’s assembly line of sandwiches has moved at top speed, with customers sampling for free their choice of meat before committing to a full sandwich. During World War II, the owners sent food to their three sons overseas, a tradition that helped create the deli’s slogan, “Send a salami to your boy in the army.” Today, the cafeteria-style eatery’s best-known menu item is a New York tradition for locals and tourists alike. A mound of smoked, black-edged slices of pastrami, smothered with deli-style mustard is served on rye bread and comes with a healthy serving of pickles.
