Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant

9:28 AM PDT on August 30, 2018

    [dropcap size=big]N[/dropcap]umber 1, number 10, and, of course, number 19. We’re talking about the pastrami sandwiches at Langer’s, of course, and topping variations thereof: with Swiss cheese, without; with coleslaw, without; with Russian dressing, without; with all of the above, with none of the above. Whatever your preferred permutation, it is not a hyperbole to say Langer’s pastrami sandwiches have no equal in the city, and some, like Nora Ephron, would argue, in the country. So memorable is Langer’s pastrami that many can recall their very first time at the deli, and the very first time they slid into one of the deli’s worn booths. The first time they were handed that giant menu, the first time they thought really hard about what their sandwich should be. The first time they finally settled on a number — and made it theirs.
