Hands down: The BEST Chicken Soup in L.A.
I have to tell you Chowhounds...I just put my soup spoon down and have been compelled to post immediately. I just had the Chicken & Vegetable Soup from Greenblatt's Deli and it was amazing. Please take it from this NY Jew, with a yiddish-speaking Bubbe from Brooklyn, that this is the real deal. I'm still in a state of shock. I ordered some for delivery (first time trying Greenblatt's) because I have Strep throat, and now I'm miraculously cured! Well...maybe I shouldn't go that far, but the soup was excellent. Fresh, huge white chunks of chicken breast, big sweet carrot rounds, and slices of celery and onion. The seasoning was just right as well. I'm so happy that I ordered 2 quarts (I put the second one in the freezer) since this is going to be my go-to soup now when I want a taste of home. Just had to get my feelings out there on this! :)

Greenblatt's rare roast beef is the best in LA, hands down. I bought 7 pounds of it for my Christmas party. We drive their from Santa Monica whenever we need a lean rare meat fix. I adore their stuff.
