The comedy show that took over Katz’s Deli last year is back this fall. Overground Underground, a group that hosts comedy shows in unusual spaces, like tattoo parlors and subway stations, will return to the famed Manhattan deli on November 15. Last year, the show sold out in under a minute and people waited in a line around the block. Tickets go on sale on October 25 at 7:30 p.m.; there’s a second sale on November 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $162 per person, which includes french fries, drinks, and a pastrami sandwich.
‘Jewish-style’ barbecue tries again
If it’s not working, try somewhere else. Pulkies, a restaurant that serves “Jewish-style” barbecue, returned to the Gotham West Market in Hell’s Kitchen last week. The business started as a stall in the Chelsea Market food court in 2020 that has since closed. In Manhattan, the business is focusing on takeout and delivery. Instead of barbecue with sides, it serves sandwiches with pulled turkey and brisket
A new seafood restaurant in Brooklyn
South Slope is getting a new seafood spot this week. Siren, an oyster bar and seafood restaurant, opens on Wednesday at 687 Fifth Avenue, between 20th and 21st streets. The menu runs from clams casino and crab cakes to mussels and a whole branzino. The Dover sole is market price, but the Connecticut-style lobster roll costs $28. Reservations are available online.
