As far as food holidays go, St. Patrick's Day oftentimes gets overlooked. When we think of food and beverage products from Ireland, it's hard to think beyond proper nouns (Guinness and Jameson come to mind) and potatoes. But the thought of corned beef sounds really good right around this time of year — or, if you're a fan of the uniquely savory, peppery meat, corned beef sounds good just about all the time. On everything.

Some chefs break it out just for St. Patrick's Day, some chefs put it on top of nachos, and of course some of the best sandwiches in the city use it as their main ingredient, so here's a list of 18 places to get corned beef in Los Angeles, whether it's only on St. Patrick's Day, or year-round.

Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant

Sure, there’s the standard #19, but have you tried the #88? It’s a corned beef party — and sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Russian dressing are all invited inside a house of grilled rye. If you’re feeling knife-and-forkish, the corned beef is also available as a dinner with steamed cabbage.

Belcampo Meat Co.

The good folks at Belcampo Meat Co. aren’t just celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a corned beef and cabbage meal (which is sure to be made with humanely raised beef), but also the butcher shop and food stand's first birthday on St. Patrick’s Day by offering up free cups of bone broth. (St. Patrick’s Day only)

Canter's Delicatessen

Fear not if your St. Patrick’s Day festivities end late without a taste of corned beef: The Fairfax institution has flaky-yet-juicy corned beef sandwich as well as a corned beef and cabbage plate served 24 hours a day.

Greenblatt's Delicatessen & Fine Wine Shop

Corned beef at Greenblatt’s isn’t just a special: it’s on the restaurant’s “Bucket List.” If you purchase a bottle of wine from the shop downstairs, corkage is free — because sometimes all you need with your corned beef Rachel sandwich is to wash it down with a smoky Syrah.

Corned beef and cabbage isn’t the only thing on the menu at this authentic Irish pub. In addition to the St. Patrick’s Day favorite, there’s also Boxty (a type of potato pancake) and champ (mashed potatoes with scallion and butter) for those who are truly homesick for Eire.(Photo courtesy of EatingLA.com.)

Mickey McColgan's

Copy Link

Mickey McColgan’s serves up corned beef Reuben sliders in addition to a full on corned beef reuben sandwich, and it might be the only place in town where you could get your Reuben with a side of quinoa, or corned beef nachos.

Molly Malone's Irish Pub

Copy Link

Fairfax District’s pub named after a famous Irish folk song doesn’t sell cockles and mussels, but they do have an affordably priced corned beef sandwich on rye in addition to live music. Tickets to Molly Malone’s St. Patrick’s Day will run you $10 apiece.

Nate 'n Al Delicatessen

Nate’n Al’s corned beef sandwich doesn’t skimp on the goods — the rye takes on a parabolic shape from the sheer amount of meat and slaw stuffed into the sandwich at this Beverly Hills mainstay.

Tam O'Shanter

Copy Link

The Lawry’s Restaurant group might sell prime rib at their small chain of pubs, but they also have a stellar corned beef and cabbage on the menu that comes with spicy English mustard.

Tom Bergin's

This Irish gastropub has been around for ages, and they’ve got the corned beef market virtually cornered; think corned beef and cabbage, corned beef sandwiches and... corned beef poutine.

Venice Whaler Bar & Grill
