Who Got The Honors For New York State?
New York's most legendary restaurant according to this list is Katz's Deli, located in New York City:
New York is a city full of iconic restaurants, from Peter Luger to Grand Central Oyster Bar, but no spot is better known than Katz's. Founded in 1888, the deli has appeared in countless movies and TV shows – most famously, When Harry Met Sally (the table at which the scene was filmed now has a plaque that reads: 'Where Harry met Sally...hope you have what she had'). You'll probably have to wait in line, but the legendary pastrami sandwiches are worth it."
The outside has been used for countless TV shows, and even some pop songs. Here's a few classic pop culture moments here:
- Katz's was the site of Meg Ryan's famous scene in the 1989 romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally..The table at which Ryan and Billy Crystal sat is marked with a sign that says, "Where Harry met Sally... hope you have what she had! Enjoy!"
- Katz's Deli is the site for a scene in Across the Universe from 2007, in which Max reveals he has been drafted into the Vietnam War.
- It was the site of Johnny Depp's character meeting with an FBI contact in Donnie Brasco in 1997.
