Great deli in the same complex as Laugh Factory and Hyde. Stop in for a bagel and lox or sit down in the diner-like front area and order a pastrami sandwich. There's also an impressive wine retail component here. Free parking in the lot in back.
Number two combo on the triple decker menu with a side of macaroni salad, it'll blow your mind.
Greenblatt's is right on Sunset Boulevard. Sometimes you will find some people trying to sober up after partying, which is perfect because they have matzo ball soup late into the night.
The BEST quality... hands down! – Okay... If you don't want to pay top dollar for the high quality food at Greenblatt's, there are thousands of other places to get a deli sandwich in Los Angeles but IMHO, you get what you pay for. The quality here is 2nd to none. I lived in L.A. for 10 years and always make a point of making it to Greenblatt's when I visit. The #5 combo is to die for... I can taste it right now! ...get it with their awesome potato salad. They have a great wine and beer selection and also the deserts will make you want to take something home as well.
Best Deli in L.A. Hands Down – If you're someone who appreciates top quality pastrami or corned beef - just stop here. Just give up your search and surrender to the best sandwich you'll find on the West Coast. I'm partial to the corned beef on rye with swiss. If I'm really hungry I'll add a bowl of matzo ball soup. Wash it down with a Dr. Brown's cream soda. My husband and I like to go here after seeing a movie at the Arclight - it's our low key date night. There's a convenient parking lot behind the restaurant and generally a short wait for a table. The booths downstairs are great for people-watching as the front door is right on the Strip so all kinds stop in for a bite. There's also a well stocked wine store downstairs and a refrigerated section with ready-to-eat dishes and desserts you can take home. I see the manager/owner here 90% of the time - he really cares about this place.
Matzo Ball Soup at its Best! – Greenblatts is my first stop at the early signs of a cold for their incredible matzo ball soup. It has one giant matzo ball that is the perfect consistency with a generous amount of chicken and vegetables as well. Their sandwich menu can be intimidating, but typically the more complicated, the better. I usually opt for one of their specialty sandwiches like the turkey pastrami on rye that comes with Russian dressing, coleslaw and swiss cheese (instead of just a turkey sandwich that is relatively dry due to the lack of condiments). Greenblatts also boasts an impressive alcohol selection with tons of different wines and hard-to-find liquor all at reasonable prices. It's a great place to drop in for lunch or dinner (especially since they're open until 2am), but also very convenient for pick-up on a rainy afternoon.
Great Matzo Ball Soup – If you are feeling blue or feeling sick and you want some chicken soup--just go to Greenblatt's. You walk in and the aroma of the food is so good. They have a great wine selection and the people are very helpful and nice. Good location. Good late night bites. Just good all around.
Best Tuna Melt in Town/THE WORLD – I like Canter's as much as the next gal, but the food at Greenblatt's is truly superior. Plus, you can get a really great deal on a good bottle of wine. I have to recommend the kreplach, the salads, the kugel, and any of the myriad delicious desserts (cheesecake is to die for) but the star here is the tuna melt. I am a tuna melt aficionada, and this is probably the best one I've ever had (I get it on rosemary bread with tomato and aged cheddar). If I could make love to a sandwich, I would.
Two quibbles: I don't think that it's really "one dollar sign" cheap, Citysearch. You'll drop at least $10 for any sandwich on the menu, and sides are extra. They're all totally worth it, but where are the fries? A sandwich shop needs fries!
This unassuming Sunset Strip deli has served noshers of all stripes for more than 70 years. – In Short
A well-stocked deli counter, vinyl booths and one of the best wine shops in the state greet diners. Patrons order deli staples such as matzo ball soup, chopped liver and soft, oniony potato knishes. Kugel, a house specialty, is a dense, towering block of egg noodles, cream cheese, cinnamon and raisins. The traditional deli-sandwich menu boasts endless combos, but of particular note is the thinly sliced brisket on rye.
Lot's of choices – While this might be a little more expensive than your average deli, it is well worth it. The portions are oversized, there are dozens of sides. This is a real Jewish-style deli. The perfect place to grab a quick lunch.
favorite deli – I've been going to Greenblatt's since before I could walk. From Shabbat dinners to Ham and Cheese Sandwiches...it's across the board the greatest deli in LA.
Oldie and goodie – Sunset Boulevard's old time favorite not only has some of the best deli food in LA but also one of the largest inventory of fine wines, champagne and spirits with low prices and local delivery available. Surprise someone with a romantic picnic by choosing from a selection of gift baskets, fresh caviar and the gourmet deli. Store hours are amazing: Open 365 days a year from 9am-2am.
