All right, all right -- so we're not New York. But there's no reason why Los Angeles can't celebrate this week's National Pastrami Day. We know we can hold our own in the pastrami wars (a cold war that often threatens to go hot.) After all, we can lay claim to Langer's. But the options go even beyond the MacArthur Park classic: here we have the best pastrami in L.A., from Thousand Oaks to Alhambra.
