RE: Atkins Diet and other tortures
Atkins update for Jane: Since we were in NYC yesterday for the Gourmet Institute, we made a long-overdue trip to Katz's deli, which happens to be one of the great places to eat on the Atkins diet. While Jane was unable to enjoy French fries, latkes, or an egg cream, she did feast on heaps of corned beef and chopped liver. And I was able to tell her -- honestly -- that the rye bread isn't as good as I remember it being. (No crunch to the crust, no vivid sourdough flavor.) Still, I think it remains one of the essential New York eating experiences.
