2 winners, one day. Not bad.

 

And everyone in both places was super nice.

More surprising given that Le BAT is an Israeli outfit.

We spoke to the young Israeli chef - really nice guy.  What was funny was how he compared Frenchie To-Go's pastrami to Katz's and said it was nowhere near as good. And then pointed out that it was similar to how everyone likes the falafels on Rue des Rosiers - but they can't hold a candle to most of what's available - in Israel!

That's a bit of hyperbole. Most of what's available in Israel is made from commercial mix (that has many things going on in it except for chickpeas and spices) and fried in burnt oil, but then you don't eat most of what's available, you go to the good places. The stuff on Rue de Rosiers is above average in Israel as a whole, but not major league. I hope Frenchie's doesn't relate to Katz in the same way, but I suspect it might.  :D

A good point about comparisons.   What's special is when you inadvertantly fall over one that beats everything in your experience.

Yeah, we went for their small plates dinner & sat at the bar for a couple of hours, mostly talking to the chef (Yariv) about NYC. He mentioned some very loud customers that had come in a couple of weeks beforehand & destroyed the place...gave him your names & told him he can hold John T. accountable for your being there.

Apparently, Yariv has moved on and a new Exec. Chef is now in Le Bat's kitchen.

Well, Le Bat is now long gone but Yariv seems to have opened an Israeli type sandwich place called Salatim a couple of years ago that is garnering good reviews. We havent made it there yet (and may not) but, if we do, we’ll report back.
