Katz's to open Express deli in The Woodlands

Katz's Deli owner Barry Katz is opening the first spin-off of his New York-style deli in The Woodlands.

Katz's Express, located at 19075 Interstate 45 North in the Portofino Center, will open on Sept. 15.

The restaurant will serve same fare found at Houston's Katz's Deli and Bar, located at 616 Westheimer, but with express service.

"Everybody kept asking me, 'When are you going to open in the suburbs?,' So this is our way to bring pastrami to more people," Katz says.

The restaurant, which will feature a 14-foot Statue of Liberty, will seat 105 diners indoors and 20 on the patio.

Like the Houston location, all breads will be baked in-house, soups will be started from scratch, and all meats will be cooked on the premises. The original Katz's Deli operates in downtown Austin.

The new Katz's Express concept will serve towering signature sandwiches, salads, pastas, entrees, burgers, foot-long hot dogs, breakfast items and desserts.

Katz's Express will hold a charity opening on Sept. 15-17 to help raise money for The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. (GrassRoots Environmental Education Network), a non-profit organization committed to educating the community about natural resource conservation, recycling and responsible actions that protect the environment.
