Hg2 : The Hedonist

Canter’s Deli

This iconic Jewish deli is a delightfully unrefined holdover from a bygone era, and – much like a matzo ball floating in broth – feels plopped down, dense and undeniable, on Fairfax. Everyone from Muhammad Ali to Marilyn Monroe has eaten here, though these days the 24-hour spot has become a favorite hangout of hungry hipsters hunting a late night snack or some hang time in the adjoining lounge, the Kibitz Room. Get a load of these stats: Canter’s has purveyed over 2 million pounds of lox, 9 million pounds of corned beef, 20 million bagels, 10 million matzo balls, and 24 million bowls of chicken soup. The numbers don’t lie, people. Get thee to this greasy spoon.
