Brix at the Shore

Los Angeles


When you walk into Brix at the Shore, away from the mishegoss of 2nd St. and into the confines of what feels like a calmer, beachier, cheaper version of a New York deli, you'll be greeted by the aromas of pan-fried potato latkes and and smoked pastrami. Quirks reminiscent of Jewish deli culture run rampant here, like chalkboard menus that read "Not your Manischewitz" (the wine list), "Noshes" (for starters, like Oy Vey! onion rings or pastrami eggrolls), and "No Soup for You" (served with a smile, unlike those from Seinfeld's Soup Nazi). The signature sandwich here -- and the quirks continue -- is The Fuhgeddaboudit: pastrami, coleslaw, and special sauce on rye.
