Never kloses

katzlox.jpgThe potato pancakes are as fine as ever at Katz’s, and the acoustics are as bad. Because it’s always busy at any time I’m ever there, day or night, the vocal cords get a workout in any attempt at conversation. As the sign says, there’s breakfast 24 hours a day. One of our party had a huge platter of lox with a bagel accompaniment; another had a very generous mushroom omelet. Yet another had a true (and large) chocolate milkshake, the sight of which inspired people at a couple of adjacent tables to add that item to their orders. The hit of the day was stuffed cabbage, ordered by the person who usually selects the roast-beef or roast-turkey sandwich. Three large cabbage items arrived on the plate and demanded to be shared if the generous portion was to be consumed entirely. The all-spud plate worked for me. The latkes and applesauce were accompanied by excellent hand-cut French fries. We consumed everything, but remains of the generous portions were carried away by some. From our window table, we could see through the clear carry-out cases that many took their pickles home. All pickles at our four-top were downed right there.

    I can’t help it. I gotta tell ya. I’ve boycotted Katz’s ever since owner Marc Katz’s disingenuous stance against giving local restaurants the *option* to allow dogs on their patios.
