I stopped by Langers on a Sunday at about 7pm, having not checked their hours beforehand and was sadly disappointed that they weren’t open and also that they close at 4pm when they are open. At 7pm the light cascading in the place was absolutely beautiful. Why I didn’t take a picture then, who knows. But it would have been perfect for this little story. Langers, please stay open later! While it is also a tourist destination it is completely different then the Katz experience in NYC (and dare I say Langer’s pastrami is better). They are different in their own right and I’d never turn down the pastrami at Katz’s either. Langers goes to the top of my list for places to visit in LA. Pastrami with a little mustard is all you need. I’m not eating diary right now, or I would have gone with the Pastrami and Swiss. It looked so good. A basic pastrami was all I got and its a good test as to the quality of the sandwich, much in the same way that a plain cheese pizza is a good barometer of how good NYC pizza is.
