Giving You My Deli Best

Updated: Apr 22, 2021


My initial inspiration for this post came from one of my sisters in Florida who sent a text and photos of an order she received in Florida from NY’s famous Katz’s Deli.

Sis: “A New York present 🎁. NY rye bread and black and white cookies.”

Me: “I'm becoming Jewish for Lent!!! Wow! What a feast!”

Me: “Not too shabbos-y!” (It was a Friday afternoon)

Me: “Let's see, if I catch a plane, I could be there in a few hours.”

Me: “In honor of your good fortune, here's a song called Noshville Katz...Katz's allows dancing in the aisles AND on the tables:

Me: “Looks like there really is such a joint...”

Me: “The song's writer is actually in the Songwriter's Hall of Fame.

--A little chicken soup for the soul...

Mazel tov!”
