Pastrami City

Hosted by

There’s a scene in the last season of Mad Men in which Don Draper visits L.A., from New York City, meets his partner Pete for Lunch at Canter’s Deli, and is shocked by the way the restaurant serves coleslaw directly on top of its pastrami sandwiches. If that was a shocker by 1969 standards, Campbell and Draper would flip out to see what’s on the menu in 2015. We delve into L.A.’s pastrami scene with a guest who dares to suggest the West Coast does it better.
