    July 25, 2013 | 5:37 pm

    At Art’s Deli in Studio City, which consistently ranked among Los Angeles’ best delicatessens, there’s an old saying: “Every sandwich is a work of Art.”

    Born on Feb. 19, 1935,...

  • From Kosher to Jew-ish

    By Michael Israel

    February 21, 2013 | 12:19 pm

    Since my wife and I opened our food truck M.O.Eggrolls in 2011, I have had some of the best and worst days of my life. As the chef and owner of my own business I have had the freedom to create my own schedule, design my own menu, and create a food concept that connects with my...

  • Wise Sons: Inside ‘New Deli’

    By Rob Eshman

    January 30, 2013 | 1:43 pm

    The pastrami smoker at San Francisco’s Wise Sons delicatessen sits wedged between a short, wooden prep counter and a window facing Mission Street. It is tall and boxy and could easily appear, to those of us who don’t come across pastrami smokers very often, to be either a small...

  • Why isn’t L.A. up to haute kosher?

    January 30, 2013 | 12:08 pm

    During lunch at the Golden State restaurant on Fairfax, in between making sure my kids’ locavore-friendly food stays on plates and haranguing them to eat a few Persian cucumber slices, my eyes often linger on the hulking building across the street. In just a couple of seconds I’m...

  • Deli Renaissance: LA is ready

    by Emily Kane

    October 22, 2012 | 10:36 am

    For my family (and likely for yours, too) Jewish food is a thing of lore, love, and, at times, struggle.  When I realized that a recent trip to New York coincided with Tablet Magazine’s “Future of Jewish Food” event, I bought tickets and started counting down the days.  If anyone...

  • Sunday at Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessen

    By Rob Eshman

    August 22, 2012 | 2:17 pm

    More than Jews have kept delis, the deli has kept the Jews.

    Yes, that’s a direct ripoff of Abraham Joshua Heschel’s famous dictum about the Sabbath.

    I didn’t know Heschel, but I bet if I could have gotten him alone over a cup of cold beet borscht at Rattner’s, he would have...

  • With a side of wry, a ‘schmucky’ deli truck rolls into L.A.

    May 4, 2012 | 10:08 am

    It’s not a dinner for schmucks but a lunch served by one.

    That may sound harsh, but how else to introduce a new food truck rolling on the streets of Los Angeles called “Schmuck with a Truck”?

    On only his eighth day of business, the yellow lunch truck with the likeness of...

  • My Very Merry Jewish Christmas

    By Ilana Angel

    December 26, 2011 | 2:00 pm

    I had a fabulous Christmas, which was also the 6th night of Hanukkah.  It feels festive and inclusionary when they overlap, and you almost forget about all the crap in the world, because so many people are united in faith this time of year.  Regardless of what the faith is, there is...

    This blog is about thrifty living, and one of my mantras – especially for chronically unemployed free-lancers like myself – is “Say yes to everything.”  I figure a day’s work is better than staying home and re-organizing my spice rack.

  • Can the Jewish Deli Be Reformed?

    April 16, 2010 | 10:23 am

    From NYTimes.com:

    WHEN a Jewish deli decides to stop serving salami, something is wrong in the cosmos

    At Saul’s Restaurant and Deli in Berkeley, Calif., the eggs are organic and cage free, and the ground beef in the stuffed cabbage is grass fed. Its owners, Karen Adelman and Peter Levitt, yanked salami from the menu in November, saying that they could no longer in good conscience serve commercial kosher salami.

    Last week The Jewish Journal featured an excerpt from David Sax’s new book, “Save the Deli.”  Sax did a worldwide tour of delis, at great expense to his love life and his waistline, and at the end of it named L.A. “The Best Deli City in America.”  For a Jewish paper in LA, that’s a...

    August 28, 2009 | 6:13 pm

    Chicago and Cleveland have the best corned beef. Detroit is tops for rye bread. The best smoked meat is in Montreal, and for pastrami, you can’t touch New York and L.A.

    When it comes to Jewish delicatessen, 30-year-old David Sax is the go-to guy. A longtime deli aficionado, the...
