Canter's Deli Celebrates Anniversary With Steep Discount, 70-cent Reubens

Canter's Deli will mark its 70th year anniversary on Fairfax Avenue Tuesday by selling pastrami Reubens or a veggie version of the sandwich for 70 cents.

The special will run from 4 p.m. to midnight and will be limited to one per customer -- dine-in only. The Canter's Reuben -- corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing grilled between slices of rye bread for the traditional version or a veggie patty substituted for the meatless version -- will be served with a homemade pickle, potato chips and a chocolate chip rugula.

Canter's Deli started in New Jersey in 1924, then moved to Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles in 1931, where it was called Canter Brothers. The 24-hour deli was then moved across town to its current location in 1948.
