The recent Times story on the razing of the legendary Schwab's Drug Store and the subsequent establishments that will be forthcoming on the extended site at Sunset and Crescent Heights listed the Carnegie Delicatessen among future inhabitants (Metro, Oct. 7). The original Carnegie Deli is as much a Manhattan landmark as Schwab's was in Hollywood, and the going-and-coming was the stuff of good story material but, unfortunately, it's all wrong. The Beverly Hills-bound Carnegie Delicatessen will open at Dayton and Beverly Drive.

When Junior's Deli closed in late December, longtime customers lined up for a last, nostalgic nosh at the 53-year-old Westside institution. But Brian Won's main reaction was "meh. " "The food was unremarkable," said the West Los Angeles IT specialist, 32, who visited to use up a Groupon voucher. "Given that there are so many good places to eat in L.A., I have a really hard time saying yes to that. " Increasing apathy, particularly from younger patrons, has driven traditional Jewish delicatessens from their mid-century pinnacle.

The seconds-in-command for the NHL and the players association met Saturday in what was described as a secret location in an effort to revive their stalled labor negotiations. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA Special Counsel Steve Fehr restarted the talks a day after the league announced it had canceled the Jan. 1 Winter Classic outdoor game, its annual showcase. The league has canceled 327 games since it locked players out on Sept. 15, more than a quarter of the season.

Just before billionaire Marvin Davis boarded a plane from New York to Los Angeles a few years ago, he called his wife. "I'm bringing $1,000 worth of food from the Carnegie Deli," he said. When his plane stopped in Denver, he called her again. This time he said, "I'm bringing $600 worth of food from the Carnegie." Davis is a big man with a big appetite, and this time he's taken a big bite out of the Big Apple.

The Carnegie Deli is not a "new breed of restaurant," as Ruth Reichl's article would have us believe ("L.A. Reinvents the Deli," Aug. 6). It is nothing more than another one of those Hollywood-type places where people go not for the quality of the food or the surroundings but because it's the in place , for the moment.

The talk around the corner table at Nate 'n Al's delicatessen is the opening of billionaire Marvin Davis' Carnegie Deli a few blocks away. The reason it comes up is that the Carnegie has opened with a lot of fanfare and on this particular morning, Nate 'n Al's is quieter than usual. Most of the time you can't even get in for breakfast. The story goes that an elderly man fainted in the crowded lobby once. When he revived, the first thing he wanted to know was if he'd lost his place in line.

Milton Parker, 90, the longtime owner of New York's famous Carnegie Deli, renowned for its gargantuan pastrami, tongue and chopped liver sandwiches with such names as "Nova on Sunday" and "50 Ways to Love Your Liver," died Jan. 31 in Queens of respiratory problems, said his daughter, Marian Levine. His family says nothing will change at the legendary deli in Manhattan's Theater District, where Woody Allen filmed scenes for "Broadway Danny Rose." Over the years, the restaurant has developed a devoted following for its oversized sandwiches stuffed with meat, some costing more than $20 and named after celebrities including comedian Henny Youngman.

Let's face it, pastrami is still king of deli fare, even in Los Angeles, as our own poll uncovered. But tastes in deli sandwiches are changing. Lighter meats, such as turkey and tuna, served in smaller portions are showing up in local California-style, Italian, German and Middle Eastern delis. Most pastrami sandwiches are extremely simple: pastrami and mustard on rye. Non-traditionalists add everything from cheese, coleslaw and dressing to lettuce, tomato and, yes, even mayonnaise.

"I'm running out of product," said manager Steve Romick, standing at the door looking miserable as he turned people away. "We're going to have to close early." Thus ended the first night of the first day of the most hyped deli in history. They were low on food, low on drinks, low on energy. Nobody had quite expected it to be like that. When the management opened the doors at 7 a.m. there were people waiting; at 7 p.m. there were still people waiting.

"Natalie, darling," he shouts at a Carnegie Deli waitress, waving a hand vaguely toward a man lowering himself to a table, "see my friend, Mr. Shapiro, gets linen." The voice sounds like an afternoon at Ebbett's Field--and it is almost as loud. Natalie snatches the paper napkin off the table of the honored Mr. Shapiro; she hands him his new linen napkin as if it were a trophy.
