Brant Cox of has a new article up entitled, “LA Deli Power Rankings,” and we’re thrilled to be included – at the #1 position! Just listen to Brant’s effusive support for what we like to call “the world’s best hot pastrami”:

There’s nothing more liberating than seeing the look on a New Yorker’s face when someone says LA has the best pastrami. So we’ll go ahead and say it again – LA has the best pastrami. And all you need to do is head down to Alvarado and 7th, and pay a quick visit to Langer’s for proof. The LA landmark has been dishing out the best pastrami in the world (we can confirm through extensive scientific analysis) for over 70 years, with the #19 sandwich serving as its pièce de résistance. Pastrami, swiss cheese, and Russian-style coleslaw stacked between two perfect pieces of rye bread. This is the standard bearer for all things pastrami. Come at us.

It’s a terrific article that deserves a complete read. Thank you, Brant, and thank you, We are honored. – The Langers

Los Angeles Times: The Challenge Presented by a Langer’s Classic

Here’s a terrific article in the Los Angeles Times by Patrick Comiskey:

Let’s face it: pairing win e with food can be a fairly fussy business. The more time you spend thinking about it, the more absurd it all seems…

I was thinking about this recently as I bit into a Langer’s No. 19 pastrami sandwich, following it with a sip of old-vine Grenache from Australia’s Barossa Valley. It was one of the great food and wine pairings I’ve enjoyed in the last year.
