I don't know what the Glutton (appropriate name) has against Canter's Deli and Restaurant [Jan. 31], but you don't know what you're talking about. From the first time I visited Canter's as a UCLA student in 1968, it has been a special place to me. It may not have quite the feeling it had in the 1970s when so many Eastern European Jewish refugees ended up working there to give it a really special feeling, but it is still Canter's.
My wife and I go out of our way to visit Canter's, sometimes coming all the way from Santa Barbara, just to buy the Eddie Cantor Special sandwich (corned beef, pastrami and turkey on rye) and the matzo ball soup (which we love). We take home the great rye bread, the fabulous pickles, bagels, corned beef and pastries.
