Strawberry Blintzes at Katz's

It's three in the morning. Your nerves are frazzled as your drunken friends have discovered the Broadway tunes on your iPod and are rocking out to Kristen Chenowith in Wicked. The neon sign of Katz's comes into view. Suddenly, your disturbing fantasies of crashing into oncoming traffic are replaced by the image of strawberry cheesy-ness. Once inside, you watch as your fork cuts through the rich topping into the gooey pastry below and feel the happy endorphins pump. How often has this happened to you? Okay, okay. Replace Wicked with Avenue Q. The Tony's did. Whatever your reason, Katz's offers the respite you've been craving on the drive home.
