History[edit] The Canter family originally opened a delicatessen in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1924. They came west along with many Jews from the northeastern United States, and in 1931 they opened a delicatessen on Brooklyn Avenue in the Boyle Heights neighborhood, which at that time had a substantial Jewish population. After World War II, the Jewish population of Boyle Heights left en masse for the Fairfax District, West Hollywood, and other West Side neighborhoods (as well as the San Fernando Valley) and Canter's followed the influx of Jewish businesses west. A location at 439 North Fairfax Avenue opened in 1948; in 1953, the restaurant moved up the block into the former Esquire Theater (which had previously shown Yiddish-language films), resulting in a delicatessen much larger than its previous spaces. The restaurant was further expanded in 1959, and the Kibitz Room cocktail lounge opened in 1961. The Boyle Heights location remained in business until the 1970s.[1] Canter's quickly became a hangout for show business personalities, given its location and late hours. It has remained such ever since. In the 1960s, Canter's became a late night hang out for hippies, rock musicians, and other countercultural types, partially for the same reasons. Also, many rock musicians had grown up in Fairfax and West Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip was only a half-mile (0.8 km) away. Canter's has remained a favorite of rock musicians to the present day, and is still open 24 hours. Canter's is open every day except for the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Canter's is known for its traditional deli favorites, such as pastrami, corned beef, matzoh ball soup, challah, lox and bagels, and brisket. It also has a large menu of other breakfast, lunch, and dinner options and has been awarded for its food many times over the years. For example, Los Angeles Magazine named Canter's waffles the Best Waffle in Los Angeles.[2] Esquire magazine called their Monte Cristo sandwich one of the best sandwiches in America.[3] The bar in Canter's, called the Kibitz Room, has its own history and has been a favorite of music personalities. Chuck E. Weiss.[4] a regular at Canter's who has his name on a plaque at the booth where he would sit, wrote a song about the Kibitz Room called, "Rocking in the Kibbitz Room."[5] Although the restaurant is open 24 hours, the Kibitz Room closes at 2 am. They have live music every night, and were the launch pad for several bands, most notably the Wallflowers, Fiona Apple, and Rick Rubin's new project, the Vacation. The Big jam has had plenty of "A List" musicians sit in, including Phil Everly, Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, and Marc Canter's high school friend Slash.[6] Marc Canter, now the restaurant's owner, published a book in 2007 about the early days of Guns N' Roses.[7] The restaurant has been featured in several movies and television shows, including HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm in the episode "The Blind Date" (2004) and AMC's Mad Men in the episode "Time Zones" (2014). In 2007, Adam Stein, finalist on the FOX TV show On the Lot, filmed Dough: The Musical at Canter's. Canter's is also mentioned in the song, "Oh Daddy," by The Turtles. In 2003, Canter's opened an additional location inside Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.[8] It closed in December 2012.[9] Another location has been announced for The Linq Promonade, next to the High Roller, [10] and also Tivoli Village by the end of the second quarter of 2016.[11] On 14 October 2008, Canter's celebrated their 60th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the deli reduced the price of their "famous" corned beef sandwich to its 1948 price of 60 cents, limited to one per customer, for a period of 12 hours.[12] In 2008, Canter's had opened another deli outlet at Dodger Stadium.[13] The operation at the baseball park closed in 2011 and was replaced by Dodgertown Deli.[14] Today, the restaurant is not certified kosher, being open on Saturdays and offering non-Kosher menu items, such as ham sandwiches. On July 24, 2014, President Barack Obama surprised the lunchtime diners and staff when he visited Canter's.[15] Bono from U2 visited the deli in 2015 and left a $150 tip.[16] In 2017 Canter's Deli announced it would open a location the Las Vegas strip. [17]

Popularity[edit] In 2006, Canter's was serving: 4,900 pounds (2,200 kg) of pastrami per month 1,500 US gallons (5,700 L) of chicken soup per week 4,000 knishes per week.[18] Canter's is also prominently featured in Ann Patchett's novel, The Magician's Assistant. Canter's is mentioned in the song "Oh Daddy", by The Turtles. Chuck E. Weiss wrote a song about the bar in Canter's called, "Rocking in the Kibbitz Room."[5]
