Restaurant Review: Nate ‘n Al Delicatessen & Restaurant

Nate n’ Al is a great little deli in the middle of Beverly Hills. You could go to Rodeo Drive to buy a designer purse or some $200 yoga pants, and completely miss it if you didn’t know any better. Well, now you know better, so there’s no excuse.

Nate n’ Al’s hearkens back to the old Beverly Hills that I used to know. I came here years and years ago. This was “our spot” every Tuesday before our weekly card game and we loved it. It was also where you went to breakfast or lunch when you had the time.

I came back the other day, after a forty years, and it seems like nothing has changed! The Mazoh Ball Soup is still the same. The Matzoh Brie is still the same (that’s fried matzoh to the uninitiated, and I recommend you try it). Even the pickles are still the same.

This is a place where you go to see and be seen. It’s the kind of place where the diamonds mix it up with the clay. Business people come on their lunch breaks. Other kinds of people bring their grandparents. I don’t think you can bring your little dogs, which is probably why we haven’t see the Paris Hiltons of the world in there. But that’s
probably for the best.

If you want my advice, bring the whole family. They have all the comforts of Jewish food and reasonable choices if you want to keep your LA figure, too. What’s not to love?
