Tony Luke's RIP

I went for the first time since the renovations-tables and bar were OK even though I missed the old concrete box sliding window decor. I immediately knew something was not reviews on the wall and the name of the place is now "Shorty's". I almost walked out but I saw a Tony Luke's neon sign over the takeout window. I carefully ordered the roast pork special-no longer referred to as the Roast Pork Italian but the ingredients were the same-pork,provolone (but not sharp) and broccoli rabe. This must still be the place. But to my horror the cheese was tasteless, the bread a limp soggy mess and the ultimate insult-the broccoli rabe had no garlic!I almost cried when I was done hoping maybe I had made a mistake and Tony Luke's had moved somewhere else. What the :)+:?"!@'"/ happened?
