Since 1947 Langer’s has been serving L.A.’s best pastrami sandwich, a combination of supertender, hand-sliced pastrami piled high on hot, crisp-crusted double-baked rye bread. (Screen- and sometime food writer Nora Ephron has even gone so far as to call Langer’s the finest pastrami sandwich in the world.) In its over 60 years of business, and in the same downtown L.A. address, the old-style Jewish deli has grown from a diminutive 12 seats to over a hundred.
