Here’s something every pastrami lover will NOT want to miss: Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at noon, Langer’s Delicatessen hosts an LA Times Food Bowl panel discussion at the deli with Pulitzer Prize-winning food columnist Jonathan Gold of the Los Angeles Times, along with Norm Langer and Matt Giamela of RC Provision, covering everything about pastrami: its history, how it’s made, appreciation for quality, and so much more. This is a FREE ADMISSION event, first-come, first-served, with food cost at regular menu pricing. We hope to see you here!
Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant is honored to be named to Eater’s “25 Epic Los Angeles Sandwiches” list:
An easy choice for the most popular pastrami sandwich at this historic deli in Westlake, just west of Downtown. This near-perfect Jewish deli sandwich features house-baked rye bread, russian dressing, cheese, coleslaw and freshly sliced slivers of the most achingly perfect, smoked pastrami on earth. There is simply no equal when it comes to this pastrami.
Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant was honored by organized labor and city officials on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, for being a union shop and providing our employees with a living wage and benefits. We are honored by this and thank all who attended.
Our thanks to Farley Elliott and the great team at Eater LA for including us in their “Where to Find Heart-Stopping Heaps of Pastrami in Los Angeles, Updated” list now out. How many places have you visited? Thank you, Eater!
Our thanks to LA Weekly for including Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant on their 2017 99 Essential Restaurants list, and thanks to Besha Rodell for her wonderful comments on our deli and pastrami. It’s a true honor!
Life is fickle. Things change. There’s not much you can count on. What can you count on? Langer’s Deli. Langer’s will never change, or at least we hope with the fiercest of hopes that it will never change. Because as citizens of L.A. we need to be able to stand in that line, we need to be seated in one of those brown vinyl booths, we need to order that pastrami sandwich and get it on that bread served by these people in this room. Since 1947, Langer’s has been delivering what many believe to be the best pastrami sandwich on Earth. Whether you go for plain pastrami on rye or the famous No. 19 with Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing is between you and your god, but either way, Langer’s gives us all something solid to hold on to in this cruel, unpredictable world. —Besha Rodell
