Chowhound readers have spoken: Langer's Deli is L.A.'s best

Chowhound puts it thusly:

This year, by the barest of margins, pastrami trumped lobster and MacArthur Park trumped Melrose.

For eight years now, the food blog has been asking readers to decide “the ultimate Los Angeles restaurant.” And for the last three of those eight years, the readers have bestowed that honor upon Providence. This year? Chowhound readers say it's Langer's Deli.

Maybe growing up in the Northeast and then spending ten years in Manhattan spoiled me, but if I'm not a pastrami fan, what does Langer's have that would wow me? I was underwhelmed by the brisket during my only visit, and I can't think of anything that would bring me back to Langer's.
