Los Angeles, California: The Fairfax District and Canter's Deli

In mid-Los Angeles, there's an area called the Fairfax District, known as the Jewish center of LA. A favorite tourist stop, it has a lively Farmer's market, CBS Television City, Canter's delicatessen, among other sites.

Canters, which has been operating since 1931, is considered a Los Angeles institution. Open 24-hours a day and close to the Hollywood scene, it's been patronized by Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, Jack Benny, Elizabeth Taylor, Sydney Poitier, Mel Brooks, Wilt Chamberlain and many others.

We visit Canter's now and then for pastrami and chopped liver sandwiches. I usually don't like rye bread, but their's is very fresh and delicious.

Canter's is located at 419 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, California.The place is huge and even if there's a line, the wait isn't long. They have a parking lot but sometimes it's full and you have to find parking around.

Here are some pictures of Canter's and the Fairfax district of Los Angeles.
