How does an iconic restaurant that's been serving customers for more than a century expand without losing what makes it special? For Katz's Delicatessen, the answer is simple: Focus on the food.
After 128 years in Manhattan's Lower East Side, the restaurant, which is known for its pastrami and a cameo in "When Harry Met Sally," is in the process of opening up a second outpost for the first time ever. It's a decision the family-run business didn't take lightly.
While it's had numerous opportunities to expand over the years, the family passed on them because they couldn't do it the right way, said the company's 29-year-old "Top Dog" Jake Dell.
