Sealed With a Knish: Our 5 Favorite Jewish Delis

By Matt Swenson, June 12, 2017

Jewish delis will always be synonymous with New York. Luckily, you don’t have to be planning in the Big Apple to get perfectly cured corned beef or bite into a luscious latke. Catering a meal from one of these establishments would go down as a genuine mitzvah, especially given their reasonable prices.

Katz’s Delicatessan

New York City
