Several readers have let me know that the Jewish eatery Wexler’s Deli is coming to the downtown area. I have also heard but not confirmed that the location will be inside the Santa Barbara Public Market.

“Wexler’s Deli stands for three things: tradition, craftsmanship, and quality,” says their website wexlersdeli.com. “Born of a desire to serve classic Jewish deli food made by people who care, Wexler’s uses old-school methods to handcraft our pastrami and smoked salmon. After curing in a special blend of salt and spices, our meats and fish are slowly smoked in house over apple wood and sliced by hand in front of your eyes.”

Wexler’s Deli has 2 locations, both in in Southern California; Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica.

    Oh thank heaven! We have been too long without a Jewish deli and they have a great reputation. So come on S.B., lets keep them busy and open! Can’t wait either. I feel my arteries clogging happily already.

    Nothing has survived that back left corner of the market. Hopefully they break the “curse”.
    New ownership has done a great job w the market. Definitely improved that back area.

    FINALLY – after 30+ years of driving to TARZANA/Woodland Hills – Camarillo in a pinch – a REAL Deli.
    Would b even better if they were going to b somewhere where there was handy parking. Maybe a second location soon?

    I was so excited…but no Pastrami sandwich on the menus ! Pastrami lox sounds interesting but I need real Pastrami.
