Is there any place to get an Italian Beef in this city?

OK | May 1, 2006 05:21 PM

I'm a relatively recent transplant from the Chicago area and I've been absolutely dying for an Italian Beef sandwich. I've chased menus all around the city only to find that even places that claim to have them (Rosamunde, Dogzilla etc;) have actually stopped carrying them. Does anyone know, for sure, of a place that still offers one?

I suppose I should explain what I'm looking for: to me, an Italian Beef sandwich comes in two varieties. There's the heart-stomping fast-food variety that serves up a ton of finely chopped beef on an extremely greasy/soggy bun and loaded with giardenera hot pepper mix...and there's the more refined "Italian deli" version that offers slightly thicker slices of beef on a good hard roll...still with the giardenera.

Any help?
