Frank’s Weiler’s Deli

Deli, American, $
Frank’s Weiler’s Deli has been tantalizing taste buds since 1962. A family-run establishment, the restaurant aims to foster quality experiences, and build on-going relationships with loyal customers. They offer a variety of dishes, from Jewish classics to chicken kabobs and stir fry dishes. The Super Reuben sandwich, served with pastrami and corned beef, is delicious, and the pistachio and chocolate chip bread is an absolute must-try.

Lovi’s Delicatessen

Deli, Sushi, Fast Food, $
Lovi’s Delicatessen is the latest venture by the Lovi family, who also run the country deli, Agoura’s Famous Deli and Pickles. Lovi’s pays homage to the delicatessens that opened in New York in the latter part of the 19th century but has a contemporary edge. It is decorated with orchids, black-and-white pictures and sleek black tables. Their menu is full of American and Jewish classics, as well as international dishes. Special cocktails are also served during brunch on Saturday and Sunday. A sports bar with a Jewish twist, it is a great place to watch the game on its large flat screen TVs.

Brent’s Deli

Deli, Fast Food, $
Brent’s is a San Fernando Valley classic. It has a large menu, with almost 600 different dishes, as well as a phenomenal catering menu. With rye bread that is freshly baked, juicy salads and huge portions, their food is simply delicious. Brent’s has two locations, in Northridge and Westlake, and delivers anywhere in Southern California.

Canter’s Deli

Bakery, Bar, Deli, Diner, Restaurant, American, $
Canter’s Deli opened its doors in 1931, and has since become an LA landmark. Open 24/7 on Fairfax Blvd, Canter’s is managed by the third and fourth-generation children of the original owners. The ambiance is welcoming, complete with friendly staff and a stylish 1950s decor. Next door is the Kibitz Room, a 1961 addition where The Doors, Joni Mitchell, members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Guns n’ Roses have come to shmooze and chat. Canter’s apricot hamentashens are delicious, as well as their famous house-made pickles and fresh rye bread.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
