Season 2 Episode 3

Katz's Delicatessen

feat. Joyce

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Michael's girlfriend Joyce joins Michael in New York City, and they dive deep into the history of the world-famous deli that's over 100 years old in this episode of Eat Deets

Katz's Delicatessen has been a staple of New York culture, amplified by its appearance in several movies and TV shows, most notably When Harry Met Sally

○ Current owner Jake Dell has rules for how to conduct oneself at Katz's to avoid being thrown out

○ Michael & Joyce address their anxiety over the intimidatingly complicated ordering process

○ A truly hot take in Yelp from Strangers as someone knocks Katz's for being too far away from where they were coming from...

Part 2: A hectic atmosphere, a hunky meat carver, and the matzo ball soup Joyce has waited her entire life to try

○ Katz's Delicatessen has so many lines and ordering stations that the chaos proves challenging to our duo

Killer Mike walks by the table

○ What's Going On Over There with the segration of those paying via card vs. those paying with cash?

○ Harrison Augustine 💸 Arrylius XIV laments that Katz's doesn't have a register that accepts gold bars

○ A review of the pastrami on rye, Katz's hot dog with mustard & sauerkraut, matzo ball soup, and chocolate babka! Plus the worst hot dog in New York (it's not Katz's...)

○ Did Katz's hold an orgasm contest??

○ JUB is in yet another post-credits scene
