Show 10, December 22, 2012: Jacqueline Canter of Canter’s Deli

Canter's Delicatessen in the Fairfax District of Los AngelesCanter’s Deli has been an institution in Los Angeles for 82 years. They relocated West to N. Fairfax Ave. from Boyle Heights in 1948. They are still one of the few respectable late night spots for a nosh in their area. (24 hours by the way…) Live music at night, too featuring up-and-coming groups.

3rd generation Canter Family member, Jacqueline, joined us to discuss the menu rehab at Canter’s. (2nd , 3rd, and 4th generation Canter Family members are active in the enterprise.) They listened to their guests and adapted accordingly. They now have a selection of gluten-free items including bagels. There are even a variety of appealing vegetarian offerings. New specialty cocktails, too.

They are particularly proud of their new selection of grilled deli Panini sandwiches. In addition to the expected meat selections there are also tasty vegetarian options. Who knew…?
