Vroman's Celebrates 125 years with special anniversary events

David Sax discusses and signs Save the Deli at the famous Langer's Deli in Los Angeles

David SaxBoy, do we have a treat for you!! To celebrate the release of David Sax's book, Save the Deli, Vroman's Bookstore and Langer's Deli (which is heavily featured in this book) are teaming up for a lunch with author, David Sax!
A few years ago, journalist and lifelong deli-obsessive David Sax became alarmed by the state of Jewish delicatessens and set out on a journey around the country (and the world) in search of authentic delicatessens. Sax has a full chapter on LA and says the following about our wonderful city: “Brace yourselves, New York, because what I am about to write is definitely going to piss a lot of you off, but it needs to be said: Los Angeles has become America's premier deli city. Wait…Stop…Put the gun down. It's true.” “The delis [in LA] are bigger, are more comfortable, and ultimately serve better food than any other city in America, including the best pastrami sandwich on earth. Los Angeles is both the exception to the rule of deli's inevitable decline and the example for the rest of the nation of how deli can ultimately stay relevant. If we are to save the deli elsewhere, we can learn a lot from LA.”
