December 15th marked the final day of Ratner's, and now Katz's is the last bastion of an era.
My parents went there...
(Daddy: Specials or Chicken Fricassee, Mom:Whole Roasted Spring Chicken)
My extended family went there...
(Gefilte fish to Chocolate Babka and Parve Cheesecake)
My friends went there...
(Matzoh Ball Soup, Knishes - Assorted, Halvah, Miniature Danish, and Black and White Cookies)
I went there...
(My Husband=Potato Pancakes, Me= Pastrami club)
