Every longtime fan of the Late Show with David Letterman knows Rupert Jee, the deli owner whose store has become a regular haunt of the show's cameras over the years. Shoppers can stop into this accidental New York City landmark not just to spot the unwitting star but also to sample his wares, which include a lengthy sandwich menu topped, of course, by the "Letterman" and the "Shaffer" (as in Late Show bandleader Paul). There are also T-shirts and mugs for sale, in case you'd like to memorialize your visit with a souvenir.
