L.A.'s best New York-style delis

October 21, 2009 | 11:54 am

A pastrami sandwich on rye bread is served up at Langer's Deli in Los Angeles, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2007. If reading today's Food section story about David Sax and his hunt for the perfect pastrami sandwich made you hungry, here's a wildly subjective list of the best New York or Jewish-style delicatessens in Los Angeles -- with a certain deli missing from the list. Feel free to comment.

Calling all fressers! You can meet Sax next week, when he hosts a discussion, "Save the Deli" book-signing and nosh at Langer's. It happens Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 2:30 p.m., but registration for the event end Saturday.
