I make a mean Reuben at home! Here are some restaurant suggestions:

Langers Deli is supposed to be the best. I'm pretty sure it has limited hours these days

Nate & Al's, Beverly Hills

Canter's Deli

Katz's Deli (no S) is still my favorite spot for pastrami. Although it's in NY, they ship anywhere.

My second favorite is Langers in LA, on 7th and Alvarado.

Yes,their hours are limited now open only until 4pm and not on Sundays. I found that out the hard way by going there a few times the last couple months....on Sunday.

Good thing with Langers is that there is a metro station right across the street in case you don't have a car.

Also, it's not a Jewish deli in the sense than its not kosher. It would be considered a Jewish style deli.

Fairfax Market? Not sure if you mean Farmer's Market which is really not that good......

Katz's ships the components to make a wonderful sandwich. You can get whole or sliced items, the bread, etc....

Overnight shipping depends on the weight, distance, etc....

Brent's Deli is the best, but it is way out in Northridge.

There are two Brent's Deli's, the other being in Westlake Village.

I would not recommend the pastrami at Brent's.....the corned beef is the better choice there....

Langer's Deli is generally considered the best pastrami sandwich in the country.

Canter's, Art's, Brent's, Greenblatt's and the rest have their fans, just because.......
