History on rye at Canter's Deli

Canter's, the landmark delicatessen and bakery that has attracted hordes of fressers to Fairfax Avenue for almost 60 years, celebrated another milestone birthday Tuesday with even bigger crowds than normal as a result. The draw? Not only sharing the beloved institution's 80th birthday (it was founded in Boyle Heights in 1931 and moved to its present location -- a former movie theater -- in 1953), but also the restaurant's specialty corned beef sandwich rolled back to its original price of 80 cents. It's something they do for every significant birthday, and customers like 65-year-old Eric Muller wouldn't miss it. "We know the dates. It's like a birthday. We don't miss it."
