OMG! Famed Katz's Deli wins fight with rival

Yes, yes, yes! The famed Katz's Deli - which featured in a simulated sex scene in romcom, When Harry Met Sally - has won a legal battle with a Florida knockoff.

Katz’s Deli of Deerfield Beach has agreed to change its name after being hit with a $1 million lawsuit by its better known New York namesake.

Katz's Deli in Houston Street sued the newcomers in June, claiming they were harming its reputation.

A Manhattan federal court judge settled the food fight by arranging a settlement. Under the terms, Katz’s must drop its demand for money damages while the Florida restaurant must change its name and refrain from using "any other name containing the Katz’s trademarks."

The Deerfield Beach eatery’s owner, Charles Re, said he’s changing the name to "Zack’s."

"We think that should do it," he said.
