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