Part 2 of the LA Weekly PLATE coverage I helped out with last week. Still bringing the tasty. Not featured but worth a mention, LA’s own Philippe’s - known for their french dip and balls-to-the-wall mustard.
LA does it’s own thing. It’s own fancier, slightly more expensive thing. There shouldn’t be a point to make any sort of comparison. They are right about the hot dogs, though. Nathan’s is probably the only holdout in the old NY hot dog scene.
Note: the Jewish deli section totally overlooks the Pico/Robertson - Miracle Mile stretch of wonderful Jewish delis that provide a much better deli experience than Jerry’s.
