Corned Beef and Cabbage
With St. Patrick's Day upon us we can count on local pubs and bars to serve green beer, shamrocks will be plastered everywhere, and those not wearing green can expect to get pinched. The celebration won't stop there, however. Corned Beef is evidently the official food for St. Patrick's Day, and who am I to ignore this tradition. I LOVE Corned Beef.
Start with one of LA's Best Corned Beef Sandwiches.
Right up the street from Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center's Studio City location is Zagat rated Art's Delicatessen and Restaurant. They've been right there on Ventura Boulevard for nearly 60 years. Here's what Zagat had to say:
Our Summary Review – ZAGAT
On the Studio City scene since 1957, this “no-nonsense”, family-run deli doles out the obligatory “sky-high” sandwiches that staunch supporters swear are “better than bubbe's”; “old-fashioned” booths and “fast”, “snappy” waitresses lend it a bit of “NY style”, though critics kvetch it's “a little too pricey for what you get.”
