Nate ‘n Al’s Deli reopens its renovated indoor dining room
Longtime grocery store reopens indoor dining for first time since pandemic
By Dolores Quintana
The iconic Nate ‘n Al’s Deli has reopened its indoor dining areas and you can now sit inside the New York-style deli from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.
The restaurant was opened in 1945 by partners and friends Nate Rimer and Al Mendelson on North Beverly Drive. After 70 years, the restaurant is now owned by Shelli and Irving Azoff, who are longtime patrons of the restaurant and are now the driving forces behind the deli. Irving Azoff is a former music industry executive and film producer, as well as CEO of Ticketmaster and Executive Chairman of LiveNation. He is now president of Full Stop Entertainment and a member of the boards of Starz and IMG.
Their goal, as the restaurant’s website states, is “to bring classic deli dishes and more to new generations of customers.” We honor the proud traditions of our past while working to create new traditions and favorites. We uphold the humble ideals that have guided Nate’n Al’s for over 70 years: quality ingredients, heartfelt service, and dishes we’re proud to share with our friends.
The restaurant offers the standards of a New York deli menu, but has added California specialties such as avocado toast, breakfast burritos and babka French toast, as well as Shelli’s crudité, which includes hummus and is named after one of the owners.
