A Celebration of Jewish Delis

Friday, May 1, 8:00 pm

About the Program

Join fellow food lovers for a deli extravaganza, featuring  a storytelling cabaret hosted by the Los Angeles Times Food Editor, Peter Meehan, in which celebrities share their personal memories of Jewish delis. Part nostalgia, part cultural history, the program will be capped off by a selection of mouthwatering samples from the finest delis in the country. Lineup and details TBA!

Arrive early to view the exhibition! Enjoy after-hours access to the newly launched exhibition "I'll Have What She's Having": The Jewish Deli, which will be open from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
