life05:53New York's most iconic deli typically has lines around the block. Here's how they've adjusted to takeout and delivery during the pandemic.Katz's Delicatessen is one of New York City's longest-treasured destinations. The 132-year-old deli is f...amous for pastrami on rye, a plate that requires about a month's attention. The meat is cured for three to four weeks, then steamed, boiled, and expertly carved into thin slices before it's layered between rye bread and deli mustard. But ever since restaurants and bars shut down for dine-in service, Katz's has been relying solely on pickup and delivery orders to keep business going. Fortunately, the deli has prevented laying off employees by assigning new jobs to busboys and waiters without any customers to serve.
