2. Factor's Famous Deli 9420 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035 (West La)

Factor's is famous for a reason. The deli has been in the same spot since 1948 and has been owned by the Markowitz family since 1969. This longevity has allowed them to perfect the art of the sandwich, piling them high with generous amounts of meats and other tasty toppings.

4. Canter's Delicatessen 419 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90048 (West Hollywood)

New York City has a lot of things that other cities don’t, like sidewalks perpetually lined with garbage, Michelin-rated restaurants that serve dinner at 2am, and authentic Jewish delis. Canter's Deli has been providing Angelenos with a little slice of New York hospitality since 1931. The 24-hour diner is a landmark institution that draws celebrities and plebs alike for smoked fish, chopped liver, pastrami on rye, matzo ball soup, and more. The bagels might not be as good as they are in New York, but that's not Canter's fault.

8. Greenblatt's Delicatessen 8017 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046

Since opening its doors in 1926, Greenblatt’s Delicatessen has become something of an LA institution, mostly because of the homemade matzo ball soup, hot Reuben, corned beef sandwich, and Double Chocolate Fudge Cake. Greenblatt’s perfectly seasoned slices of pastrami are hot and juicy every time -- saddle it with a bottle of wine from the retail shop adjacent to the deli, and enjoy your sandwich like a true LA native.

9. Lenny's Deli 2379 Westwood, Los Angeles, CA 90064 (Westwood)

Even though there are, like, no Jewish people from NY in LA, Lenny's Deli is still going to try and make a go of it, serving up NYC Jewish deli eats (homemade potato pancakes, brisket dips, LOX AND CREAM CHEESE!) alongside an impressive menu of made-from-scratch desserts, including Blackout Cake, which is actually chocolate cake with chocolate pudding layers/icing covered in chocolate ganache, and not just eleventy shots of Godiva liqueur.
