Canter's, it's no longer on the menu, along with some other items like that canned salmon dish no one loved, and the peppered beef that people always ordered thinking it was pastrami. Marc Canter, whose family has owned and operated the 24-hour Fairfax deli since 1952, tells KCET that it's simply time for a few changes. And anyone who doesn't like it can kvetch all they want.
Canter explains that they need to modernize - you know, other than launching a food truck - especially with those newer hipper 24-hour diners popping up around Hollywood. So to replace things coming off of the menu, there will be a few new additions including chocolate-chip banana pancakes, several egg Benedicts and egg sandwiches, a wedge and caprese salad, and three burgers. One even has bacon on it. There's a new cocktail menu, too, for both the adjacent Kibitz Room and the deli. A Canter's for the 21st century - yes or no?
