A nice shout out to the Langley Deli

The author's father was a counterman, and met and proposed to the author's mother, at the wonderful old Langley Deli in Newton Centre. (BTW, Bernie passed away a number of years ago, and his wife Bea more recently. Ruby lost his wife, Pearl, a couple of years ago, but he still resides in Boca Raton, Florida.)

        1. Yes, it was kind of funny--here's this article about Charlie Trotter, and suddenly I was thinking about pastrami sandwiches and salami hanging in the window, already forgetting about Trotter.

          1. My friends and I used to walk from our house on Grant Ave in Newton Ctr to Bernie and Ruby's Deli in 1970-72. There was a man that worked behind the counter with the tattoos from the concentration camp in WW2. He was the greatest! I never knew his name but one day when I asked why he had the numbers on his arm( I was 20 years), he just told me plain and simple that he got them in Germany during WW2. I was too young to understand right then and there at the moment but I still remember it to this day so clearly.
