Nate 'n Al opens new location today in Thousand Oaks

Nate-n-Als What's old is made new again as Nate 'n Al deli opens a new location in Thousand Oaks. In its 64 years of existence the famous deli has not expanded, so that alone is cause for celebration.

The original Nate 'n Al opened in Beverly Hills is 1945 and swiftly became a destination for the Hollywood crowd who loved its signature rye bread and juicy pastrami sandwiches.

Owner David Mendelson, grandson of original co-owner Al Mendelson, had been looking to open in a new location and decided he found one when he saw the Lakes, the outdoor shopping complex where the new Nate 'n Al resides. In the wintertime, the Lakes sets up an ice skating rink, so there's an added bonus if you decide to stop by for a visit.

The new Nate 'n Al joins California Pizza Kitchen, P.F. Chang's and the Claim Jumper as a dining option at the center.

Nate 'n Al, 2200 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd., Thousand Oaks. (805) 494-3354.
