Katz’s Delicatessen in Manhattan’s Lower East Side is mostly famous for two things: a legendary pastrami sandwich, and Meg Ryan’s memorable “I’ll have what she’s having” scene in “When Harry Met Sally.”

You’ll have to rewatch the 1989 classic to see her performance again, but getting your hands on a sandwich will soon be just as easy: From September 6 to 8, Bostonians will be able to order Katz’s mile-high pastrami creation through Uber Eats.

The deli has partnered up with the delivery service for a four-city tour, stopping in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and Miami to offer make-at-home pastrami sandwich kits with the purchase of another well-known, local sandwich. In Boston, that dish is Mike & Patty’s Fancy egg sandwich, which is stacked with two fried eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, red onions, and mayo on toasted Iggy’s multigrain bread. The Katz’s/Mike & Patty’s combo will be sold for $21.

Katz’s pastrami kit will include everything needed to make the famous sandwich: hand-carved pastrami, rye bread, and a jar of Katz’s mustard, all of which comes straight from the Manhattan store. The house-cured pastrami is still prepared in the same way that it was when Katz’s, NYC’s oldest deli, first opened more than 130 years ago.

Uber Eats will start offering the combo special on September 6. In the meantime, you can always get a Fancy egg sandwich from Mike & Patty’s at the spot’s cozy South End location.
