Brisket sandwich from Gentleman’s deli on Palms and Exposition. Real classy butcher place, and the brisket was just what you’d want from a brisket. Juicy, check. Savory, check. Just enough fatty goodness for taste and lubrication, check.
If you’ve been around these parts for a stretch of time, you know my love for Katz’s knows no bounds.
I always go for counter service, never the waiters, only because that’s what my Dad always does when he goes. I suspect his Dad did too. And probably his Dad.
But I am so incredibly happy…
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.
Graham Ave Meats
look at dem meats (but really its all about that sesame wedge)
I just broke the news to Coulton that the Bell House, alas, is sold out.
HODGMAN AND COULTON WERE AT KATZ’S. LOOKS LIKE COULTON GOT PASTRAMI. I’M REALLY OK WITH THIS.
But why does his sandwich look so small?
Katz’s auto always.
Whenever I see a deli online or on TV, I instantly get wafts of the symphony of smells that come together in all great Italian-American institutions. There are some things that you can’t recreate unless it’s the real thing. Roasted red peppers and fresh mozzarella? All day any day.
