In a town infatuated with the next new thing, Greenblatt’s Delicatessen on Sunset Blvd qualifies as that rare LA institution. A film industry favorite since its 1926 opening, the deli proudly broadcasts its Tinseltown connections—Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando were fans, as are more current stars like Shia LaBeouf. Greenblatt’s ambiance is what you might expect in a busy deli, from the red brick exterior to the vinyl booths and display counter filled with salads and homemade sides like applesauce and potato pancakes. The much-lauded deli fare is definitively old school, with popular items including the matzo ball soup and hot corned beef sandwich (known as "#3," to regulars).
