What is the most popular item ordered? — Susan G.
Our Pastrami Reuben — an incredible combination of black pastrami served on grilled rye bread, melted Swiss cheese, hot sauerkraut, and Russian dressing — is by far the most popular item on our menu. In fact, we recently won Best Reuben Sandwich as part of this year’s Ventura Blvd. Locals’ Choice Awards. Other customer favorites include our:
- Pastrami Sandwich
- Matzo Ball Soup
- Corned Beef Reuben
Are there any plans to add smoked sturgeon to the menu? If not, then why not? — Mike K.
We’ve served sturgeon on and off over the years, but it’s an extremely perishable product, and we haven’t seen a significant demand for it. Additionally, we haven’t found a sturgeon product that meets our standard of quality.
I recently moved away from Southern California and really miss Brent’s! How can I still eat your delicious food? — Amy P.
We’re sorry you moved away, but fortunately we offer nationwide shipping to anywhere in the United States! Give us a call at (818) 886-5679 and press 4, and we’ll be happy to ship you anything from deli meats and cheeses, to our delicious desserts. We can even have it to you the very next day!
We’re from out of the area, but we always make sure to stop by when we visit Los Angeles! The last time we there, you didn’t have a kids’ menu, but that was years ago. Do you have one now? — Jackie T.
Yes, we added a kids’ menu for children 12 and under about two years ago! It features:
- Mini Waffles
- Silver Dollar Pancakes
- Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches
- Chicken Tenders
Since then, it’s been a huge hit, especially since every child can participate in a monthly coloring content at each of our two locations! The winners get a special prize, and we post their artwork in the restaurants!
