Courtesy of my Main-Sandwich-Man-in-NYC JAF, and he is courteous from top to tip.

Dear Diary:

Two colleagues in an animated discussion. One, a native of Albania; the other, from Bangladesh.

Colleague No. 1: “I hear it’s the best in New York.”

Colleague No. 2: “No doubt about it. I never heard of it, let alone ate it, until I was taken there when I worked in that neighborhood.”

Colleague No. 1: “Someone said you get better service if you follow their rules.”

Colleague No. 2: “Definitely. Always order at the counter and always tip before you order and never ask for the lean. Never sit at the waiter service tables: that’s for the hicks.”

Subject matter: A pastrami sandwich at Katz’s. Gastronomic assimilation at its best.

Bob Stein

Eat a little pastrami at Katz’s and you are gonna be slick, all the way from your nose to your lap, top of your schnoz to the tip of your knees.
