Just stepping into what Milton Glaser and Jerome Snyder, New York's original Underground Gourmets, described some 50 years ago as a living, breathing Brueghel painting is still a great, odoriferous, slightly harrowing thrill. An ecstasy of chaos and clinking plates. No serious student of deli has not been to Katz's. Nothing else like it in the world. Yes, the pastrami and corned beef are hand-sliced and usually terrific, and that's why you go. But truth be told, it's the snappy hot dogs (natural-casing all-beef Sabrett's) we can't resist. Chalk it up to expert technique and what must be the flavor-enhancing mojo of a well-seasoned, decades-old griddle.
