Brent's Deli - Original vs. new location

rockhead | Nov 29, 2006 06:36 AM

For all the Brent's afficianados out there, how would you compare the original Northridge location with the new location in Westlake/Thousand Oaks? Having been a long-time very frequent Northridge regular, I was a little reluctant to try the new location. Went for the first time about two weeks ago and again tonight. First time, food was good, service was not - not near the service quality at the original. Tonight, both food and service was excellent. Could be that Ron, the owner, was sitting with a large group at a table across from us, so the employees had to be on their best behavior. Also, had a Howie Mandel sighting tonight as well.

So what do you all think? Beside the ambiance and size of the locations, how do the two stack-up? Does the food taste any different to you? Is there any variance in the standard/favorite items? What are your service experiences? The new location still might be working out the bugs, but so far, I've been impressed.

What say you?
