Langer's, the Westlake institution often considered the best delicatessen in America, is celebrating National Pastrami Day tomorrow, January 14. What this means, I think, is that if you order a pastrami sandwich, they'll serve you one.

Mavens often recommend the #19, Langer's double-baked bread layered with pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and homemade cole slaw, but it is hard to go wrong with the classic pastrami and mustard.

Langer's: 704 S. Alvarado St., Los Angeles; (213) 483-8050.
