Whether you’re team Lox Bagel or Pastrami Sandwich, Wexler’s Deli is here to save Santa Monica from the lack of cool lunch spots that are not as far as Gjusta. Micah Wexler, who trained at Robuchon’s, checks each and every detail: the fish is smoked daily, pickles are made in-house and bagels are prepared by a meticulous bakery. The lox bagel and/or the pastrami sandwich are ideal, but you can also venture out for a matzoh ball soup or a MacArthur Park sandwich, a tribute to Langer’s #19.
