Download our free eBook Langer’s: An American Culinary Story

For our 65th Anniversary event, we created a free-download ebook for all to enjoy. Entitled Langer’s: A Classic American Culinary Story, the book provides a complete overview of the Langer family story, from Al Langer’s childhood in New Jersey to his migration westward, the early LA delis he worked at and owned, and the founding of Langer’s in 1947.

The story continues through the glory years of the 1950s and early ’60s, and chronicles the deli’s challenges with a changing neighborhood environment and falloff in business beginning in the early 1970s through the early 1990s, when the arrival of the Metro Red Line subway system literally helped save the restaurant from extinction.
