A late night Thanksgiving dinner can't get better than the one Canter's Deli serves. There's plenty of turkey and dressing, not too salty either. The liver and onions is also a superb old style deli presentation.

We went there after a visit to LACMA. Everything was iconic: the matzo ball soup, the meatloaf, the service. Chicken tenders were surprisingly good. Photos of President Obama visiting Canter's made our day. We also picked up some desserts to go in the deli part....More

Here's the place where Gun's and Roses used to handle out back in the day. You can sit there and grab any delicious option in the menu while you play being a Rock Band star 🤓
