Put 5 pounds and 125 years of Katz's on your coffee table

As you might know, there's a new coffee-table book out now titled "Katz's: Autobiography of a Delicatessen," released to coincide with the deli's 125th anniversary.

There was a big book launch (it is a big book — weighing 5 pounds with 384 pages) last night at Katz's (we were invited but declined)... Here's a little more about the book via the official news release:

This special edition features over 600 striking color photographs by Baldomero Fernandez, which provide indelible images of the storied pastrami stations, distinctive signage, well-loved dining room, and kitchen, as well as the people on both sides of the counter — cutters, servers, kitchen workers, and customers — while part-owner Jake Dell’s text reveals the deli’s rich and compelling 125-year history, including the characteristics of the traditional Jewish foods that are at the core of Katz’s culinary legend, such as the difference between pastrami and corned beef, the deli’s own unique pickling process, and more.
