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.

"Too much glass," said one of my deli mavens, waving his arm. Too much glass? "Look at all the windows. This isn't a deli. You could get a tan in here." Great. This is why I'd asked the mavens to join me at the Stage Deli. I'm a Valley boy, I couldn't possibly know all the fine points. Myself, I was just glad we got in with less than a 45-minute wait. As the only real restaurant yet open in the new Century City Marketplace, the Stage Deli has been packed every time I've been by.

As a waitress at the Stage Deli in Century City, I must correct the Aug. 20 letter of Beryl E. Arbit of Encino. Arbit complained that the rye bread we serve has no seeds and said, "The purveyors of this stuff should be consigned for life to counting the caraway seeds in every Carnegie (Deli) creation." Enclosed you will find a piece of the rye, filled with seeds. Obviously Ms. Arbit has been living in the Valley too long, got lost coming over the hill and ate someplace else. WENDY J.

Regarding Reichl's second article in the Aug. 6 issue, "Great Pastrami Taste-Off Matches Sandwiches From L.A. Top Delis," which rates eight delis: The Stage Deli (No. 3 in Reichl's survey) piles its meat on so-called "rye" bread that contains no seeds. The purveyors of this stuff should be consigned for life to counting the caraway seeds in every Carnegie creation. BERYL E. ARBIT Encino

It is certainly revealing--as a matter of fact, it took my appetite away--to read that "for decades the Beverly Hills City Council has been meeting for dinner twice a month at city expense--and at the most expensive restaurants. (Times, Sept. 18). The published figures show tabs from five restaurants averaging about $300 each for the group. Council members justify this by saying that "dining together twice a month after afternoon sessions ensures that all five members will return on time for the night's meeting" and that "having dinner allows them to get to know each other on a more human basis, particularly after hours of often opposing words.

The scene: Premiere party for "Miss Firecracker," the new movie based on the Beth Henley play, "The Miss Firecracker Contest." The first film from Frank Perry's new Corsair Pictures was screened at Century City, with a fete following at the Stage Deli ("The play was on the stage, and now the party's at the Stage--get it?" a party planner said). Glitch: In one of the two screenings the film reel had been improperly put together, mixing up scenes and causing a 20-minute delay.

The deli has been naming its sandwiches for stars for more than 50 years, but this will be the first time that the customers will determine who is honored. Diners can also decide which celebrities they want taken off the menu in the weeklong voting, which starts Monday.
