This first-ever book on Katz’s captures the delicatessen’s unique appeal that continues to attract food lovers from around the world.Located on the corner of Ludlow and E. Houston in New York City, Katz’s Deli is a destination for thousands of tourists and for the many regulars who have kept the tradition of Friday evening hot dogs going strong for 125 years.

Established in 1888, Katz’s has carried on the tradition of Jewish deli food long after the refrigerator made pickled meats an aesthetic choice instead of a necessity.A great visual record of how a restaurant runs, this hefty volume showcases hundreds of color photographs by Baldomero Fernandez that document the unique character of this New York institution. Included are the people on both sides of the counter—cutters and customers—the pastrami stations, photo-covered walls, the too-small kitchen.Adam Richmans nostalgic and evocative foreword perfectly sets the stage for the book.

Another invaluable complement to the photos is the text written by co-owner Jake Dell. Jake outlines the delis long history, defines the difference between pastrami and corned beef, and writes about the family that keeps Katzs operating on a day-to-day basis.This book will prove irresistible to regulars whose grandfather took them for their first pastrami, and also to the uninitiated who have yet to walk on the sawdust-covered terrazzo floor, ticket in hand...for anyone who loves New York history and food, even the vegetarians!Published in association with Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, Inc., this handsome book is not a mere paperback- the high production value of the thick card stock cover and French flaps is reflected in the printing and the Japanese paper, the handy format allowing for easy browsing.
