Thus far, we have earned acclaim for our mile-high Reuben Sandwich. “Eater LA” featured us in their 18 Epic Sandwiches in Los Angeles. And the Los Angeles Magazine, Zagat Survey, and the Los Angeles Times Reader’s Choice voted us as the number one delicatessen and restaurant in Los Angeles.
Therefore, in your next visit to our Westlake Village or Northridge location, do your taste band a huge favor and order some of our premium-quality marbled pastrami. See, all our Reuben’s are served on grilled rye bread with hot sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing. These sandwiches are often; served with coleslaw and thick-cut steak fries.
To ease your selection process, here’s a compilation of our top three pastrami sandwiches.
Famous Reuben Sandwiches from Brent’s Deli
1. BLACK PASTRAMI REUBEN
Customers order our black pastrami Reuben on repeat – even when they want to try another grilled sandwich. Such is the addictive power of the tastes and qualities of pastrami, hot sauerkraut, swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and grilled rye bread.
Like any decent sandwich, the synergy of cooling dressing, crispy bread, cheesy fat, cabbage-based hot sauerkraut, and warm, seasoned, salty beef is undeniable. However, at Brent’s Deli, there’s more at work.
For one, the black pepper coating seems to multiply endlessly with each bite.
Two, the tender interior, the thin rings of cheesy fat, and the lean yet juicy bites, are expertly managed – a testament to Brent’s years of consistency.
Moreover, the dish is served with thick-cut steak French fries and coleslaw on the side, to enhance your taste band experience.
As such, the Black Pastrami Reuben is the number one menu delicacy at Brent’s Deli. You can order it extra fatty or lean, with either choice guaranteed to get you to a meaty deli sandwich heaven.
2. CORNED BEEF REUBEN
While pastrami is smoked (think of a smoked pile of peppered-at-the-edges), Corned Beef Reuben is steamed or boiled. At Bent’s Deli, corned beef is often thinly sliced and served between flawlessly marbled rye bread. Here, the corned beef is topped with sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing to form a Reuben sandwich.
The result is what you’re after with a cabbage, sandwich tanginess, and some creaminess. You get a few fresh veggies and the crunch in there, too.
Our corned beef is addictive; as such, don’t be surprised if you find yourself tempted to snack on it while walking down the street or on the subway.
How It Works
Preheating the corned beef and sauerkraut sees the Swiss cheese melts faster upon assembly.
Toasting the rye bread on one side results in a crispy exterior texture but leaves the interior tender enough to fuse with the cheese.
3. FRESH TURKEY REUBEN
The fun way to use up that leftover turkey is to turn it into a fresh (preferably holiday-themed) Turkey Reuben. Here, we top it off with a gravy-spiked Russian dressing, fermented funk of sauerkraut, and sweet & sour cranberry sauce – to yield a classic deli sandwich.
How It Works
Using the leftover roast bird adds meatiness and savory depth to the Russian dressing.
Combining the hot sauerkrauts with cranberry sauce turns those holiday vibes into an addictive Reuben sandwich.
Preheating the bird and cranberry-kraut (separately) ensures that the cheese melts faster upon assembly.
While the debate between proper pastrami and corned beef continues to bounce on the internet, the black pastrami Reuben, corned beef Reuben, and the fresh turkey Reuben continues to be the go-to quality cuts for most Angelenos. Of that, there’s no debate. Place your order for high-mile Reuben sandwiches with Brent’s Deli, a critically acclaimed delicatessen & restaurant since 1967.
