Los Angeles has the distinguished honor of being the home of Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold. His 99 Things To Eat In LA Before You Die in the LA Weekly has been thrown down as a challenge. I intend to work my way through his list, um, methodically. High on the list is Langer's hot pastrami, a delight I was introduced to by director James Gray many years ago. Langer's simply has the best pastrami (and rye bread which they bake in-house) you'll find anywhere in the world. Also, Zoe Nathan's Huckleberry which I've swooned over in this blog many times. (Woops, it's not open on Mondays -- twice I've made that mistake).
