WNYC’s Leonard Lopate takes a look at the history of NYC’s delis with authors and food writers Arthur Schwartz (former restaurant critic for the New York Daily News and now known as The Food Maven) and Joan Nathan (Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France). Then Leonard will host a tasting showdown, with Katz’s and Carnegie delis serving up their best pastrami.
