Get Your Katz’s Fix In Downtown Brooklyn

There’s nothing quite like the pastrami sandwich from Katz’s Delicatessen in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Except, that is, for the pastrami sandwich from A Taste of Katz’s in Downtown Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market Hall.

The famed Jewish deli opened its first outpost ever in the buzzy Brooklyn food market to give folks just that: A taste of the same flavors that have made the New York institution famous for over 129 years. Huge, hulking pastrami sandwiches. Crispy, just-salty-enough latkes. Matzo ball soup, with baseball-sized matzo balls. And, of course, samples of corned beef or brisket or your cut of choice from the guys behind the counter, which is about as Katz-y an experience you can get.

Our advice: Go for lunch, bring a friend and split the (famously, ridiculously huge) pastrami sandwich. And then scoop some of the aforementioned pastrami, latkes and matzo ball soup to share at your Passover / Easter / celebrations this weekend. Pass on that goodness.
