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

Telluride Daily Planet: Two Cities and a Sandwich

Here’s a wonderful review of Langer’s pastrami and deli dining experience by Jim Hollrah in the Telluride Daily Planet. Worth a 5 minute read!

LA’s pastrami champion, Langer’s Deli, where I have twice dined.  Here the pastrami sandwich reaches its pinnacle.  Hefty, yes, but not a daunting beast bigger than your head.  The crusty bread is assertive without smothering the meat, and the meat itself achieves a tender chewiness and flavor that all pastrami strives for.

Food and travel review site has a great new piece up by Georgia Sanders recounting her recent visit to Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant.

Lunch @ Langer’s Deli this past weekend was a definite two thumbs up, waaaay up!  Home of the original #19 Pastrami Sandwich, using hand-cut, hot pastrami, cole slaw, Russian dressing and swiss cheese on double-baked rye bread, it was ALL that and more (see the first photo below – honest, even as good as it looks here – the taste was like no other pastrami I’ve ever had)!

It’s a great review and we very much appreciate the positive coverage, Georgia! Thank you so much! – The Langers
