When you’re less than sober and looking for a late-night bite on the Lower East Side, you might mistake Datz Deli for Katz Deli, and honestly, worse blunders have been made. This to-go counter on Clinton Street is the second location of a Queens deli known for their Jamaican food, especially their signature Mac Patties. Even the Statue of Liberty graffitied on the wall seems to be enjoying one. And while $17 may seem pricey for a patty, consider that the “Kendra” is stuffed with oxtail (there’s another version with goat curry), mac and cheese, and sweet plantain, then slammed between slices of coco bread. Datz Deli’s three-carb sandwiches are a filling meal at any time, but work best as a substitute for melatonin (they’re open until 3am on Thursday-Saturday).
