54 Days at Sea — New York City’s famous Katz’s Delicatessen


Looking north on Bowery at Bleecker

There is one place in New York that Ursula and I consistently hit at least once each and every time. That is the incomparable Katz’s Delicatessen and their indescribably delicious pastrami sandwiches. Those sandwiches are piled so high that, if you take one along with a side of their marvelous fries, you better be prepared to share. Indeed, I doubt I could finish one on my own even without the fries. Look in the lower left corner of the photo below to see what I mean:

Katz’s is always busy every time we go there. But if there’s a wait, it’s definitely worth it.

Here’s a shot of Ursula waiting patiently for our shared pastrami on rye with a side of fries:

Katz’s Delicatessen

While Katz’s is world famous, I mentioned in Monday’s article that a rather suggestive, uproariously hilarious movie scene only further added to the mystique of this New York landmark. Yes, this was filmed in Katz’s Deli, and the last time I was there a sign hovered over the table that hosted Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal:

I doubt anyone can truly duplicate the wonderful flavor of Katz’s pastrami, but this week look for a special edition of Fun Food Friday as I come up with a really close impersonation. Until then, enjoy these New York City scenes:

54 Days at Sea — Back in the U.S.; New York City


New York City

It took MS Prinsendam only two days to bring us back to the United States from Bermuda. By now, we hadn’t set foot on U.S. soil for 51 days. But, finally, on May 14 we docked in New York City.

Lunch time? Not yet!

Ursula and I always enjoy a visit to New York, and this time was no exception. So, we departed the ship and head out for lunch at our favorite New York deli, which I’ll share with you on Wednesday (hint: this establishment was made internationally famous in an outrageously hilarious scene from a movie starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan).

As for today, I’ll just leave you with some images of the Epicopal Grace Church located on Broadway at East 10ₜₕ Street:
