I like the steamed pastrami sandwich at Ted's Market on Howard:
It's not the Jewish deli style, but it's the closest thing to Busy Bee in San Pedro, which is a childhood favorite of mine.
Deli Board also has decent sandwiches... although there's something about the tasted that's just lacking something sometimes, and everything's $3 more now that they moved to a place w/ tables.
Canter's on North Fairfax or Langer's on South Alvarado for Jewish Delis and Bay Cities in Santa Monica or Mickey's in Hermosa Beach for just Delis
Lol. I like you. Next time you're in NYC, let me buy a round?
By the way, for the OP, I loved the thread title's reference to "Dr. Strangelove"--one of my all time favorite movies.
It brings back some great memories from my Cal days, believe it or not. I'd throw out a quote, but I don't want to hijack a fun thread.
