Comfort me on Columbus Day - Juniors

Faced with the spectre of North Korea sabre rattling plus the sadness that my esteemed ancestor Leif wasn't getting his true acknowledgement that he discovered the New World, decided we needed the comfort of Juniors for lunch. In a world gone mad, a true oasis is Juniors with 'Sam' our waitperson hovering over us with instant pickles, water, chocolate phosphate (better at Factors, Mme Zoe had her favorite Reuben sans the Thousand Island dressing (could only eat half); Chowpup had a turkey burger, so huge it looked like a raft with fries well done (also took home half); I had half a turkey salad sandwich - perfect cubes of turkey, not too small, with celery, onion, not too much mayo plus tomato and whole lettuce leaf rather than that shredded stuff on freshest rye. Had a bowl of matzo ball soup (an extra $2.50 on the half sandwich and soup deal BUT its a bowl enough - more than enough - for two). A feathery matzo ball, rich broth, tender carrot and chicken neither overcooked, it rocked and made me feel I could tackle Kim Il and his bad haircut. Shared a bread pud with rum custard on the side. Three people could not finish the jumbo portion. A wonderous cold day dessert. Bill $55 plus tip. Excellent service, food.
