Langers Deli Ed Fuentes

|VIDEO| Ever since the Red Line opened in 1993, Norm Langer has never shied away from crediting the subway for saving his family’s deli. While Langer's is located adjacent to MacArthur Park, its proximity to the first subway stop outside of Downtown makes it just a few steps away from 7th and Figueroa or the Civic Center.

On Wednesday, author David Sax held a reading and nosh for his book “Save the Deli,” in which he declares that the nation's finest pastrami sandwich can be found at Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant.

The opening act for the Sax roadshow was Willard Morgan, known as "Jelvis, the Jewish Elvis."
