Their Eyes Were Watching God

Haven't seen that much tongue on tv since Huell Howser went to Canter's on Fairfax.

Fairfax County, Virginia? My hometown?

The previews looked like crap to me.

Oh, there really is nothing like Canters. Though I think Sollys in the valley (on Van Nuys Blvd just above Ventura) gives it a run for its money...

i'm partial to Canter's chicken and matzoh ball soup. Solley's has an excellent Monte Christo. For pastrami, though you must head over to Junior's on Westwood Blvd. The best pastrami dip i've tasted. Although some say Langer's is better, it's in such a bad neighborhood, i never tried it.

I realize this is very far away, but if you ever get a chance, you must try Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh.

Primanti Brothers

at 2 am every drunk in pitt will be there.
next to the old porduce loading docks in pitt.
you will see a biker next to a deb. next to the couple from the opera.
the damndest grouping of humanity you will ever see in your life.
good sandwiches too. can't figure the fries on the sandwich though.

Mmmmm...Canter's is good stuff (especially though certainly not exclusively with a bunch of drunken DA summer clerks at some insane hour in the morning). Between there and Katz's on the Lower East Side is a close call. A few delis in South Florida and at least one on Rue St. Lawrence on Montreal give them a run for their money, too, but since I forgot their names they obviously can't be QUITE as good.
