Watch Improv Everywhere Recreate When Harry Met Sally

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023).

Suffice it to say it is very loud and there's a lot "yes" shouting. And of course, a woman at the end concludes, "I'll have what they're having." The employees at Katz's were not in on the flash fake orgasm, apparently, but one shell-shocked employee says, "I think it was fun." Go, watch:
