West coasters usually have to travel east to get a bite of Katz's Deli's famed pastrami sandwiches in New York, but Angelenos should mark their calendars, as there are going to be at least a couple opportunities to get their hands on the legendary pastrami in the near future.
One of those opps was accidentally revealed by The Hundreds co-founder Ben Shenassafar, who blurted out the surprise during his appearance on the Foodbeast Katchup Podcast.
Shenassafar, AKA Ben Hundreds was explaining how his September 15, Family Style Food Festival came together, and while rattling of names of people he was bringing on, he accidentally mentioned the name of Katz's owner Jake Dell.
"We were just like, 'Let's just call a couple friends'... I called Jake Dell from... Whoops," Shenassafar said. "No one knows that news yet. If you know who Jake Dell is, you know who Jake Dell is."
The Hundreds have some of the heaviest hitters in LA restaurant scene joining them, such as Howlin' Rays, and Jon & Vinny's, but having a New York staple in Katz's adds a whole new wrinkle to the food exclusivity they're promising at their event.
Before the festival, however, LA can get its hands on the classic pastrami from now until August 25, as Katz has reportedly teamed with Belcampo Meat Co. to deliver pastrami sandwich kits through Uber Eats, according to TimeoutLA.
The build-your-own kits come with a serving of the world-famous pastrami, rye bread, Katz's famous mustard, and a Belcampo burger just for kicks.
If you're within the delivery range of Belcampo's four LA locations, you can have Katz's delivered to your home through Uber Eats for about $27.
Unfortunately, it is only available through the app and not at any of the Belcampo locations.
If you can't exactly fly out to New York anytime soon, Katz's is having a limited west coast experience. If you miss out on the Uber Eats opportunuty, you can at least try to get tickets to The Hundreds' Family Style festival.
