Being a big lover of pastrami, I was delighted to find out that the top rated place in LA was recommended for it. What they say is all true - the pastrami is truly out of this world. Having sampled the culinary delights of this wonderful little outlet, I can confidently say, my perception of what is good pastrami has been changed for ever. Back in the days, I used to buy pre-packaged pastrami sandwiches from grocers. This is all I've ever known and all I would have ever known of not for Brent's Deli.
On the negative side, I have found the parking to be a bit of an issue. Especially in the mornings when all I really want to do is sink my teeth into the moist, succulent layer of pastrami, I've found myself endlessly driving around the block in search of a place to park my car. I've eventually found a quiet street with plenty of parking nearby. So in case anyone else has the same problem take a look at the map here: http://us.findnetone.com/restaurants/california-a-c/brents-delicatessen-restaurant-19565-parthenia-street-northridge-ca-91324
If you zoom in, it is just on the corner of west 259 ave and frampton avenue. Only a 5 minute walk so well worth it.
