Best Delicatessen: Brent's Delicatessen & Restaurant

Brent’s Delicatessen & Restaurant
Northridge and Westlake Village locations

Much to the chagrin of some New Yorkers, Brent’s has been hailed as not only the best deli in California, but perhaps No. 1 in the entire United States. It’s certainly one of the busiest, with its original Northridge location alone serving more than 1,000 diners (and prepping catering for another thousand) on an average Sunday. At this family-run favorite, it’s all about how they cook, cut and heat the meats in exquisitely balanced sandwiches.
