Dare we even imagine it?
I went to Krupin's (Wisconsin Ave) the other day for lunch, and
they . . . "were out of tongue". Is Katz's ever "out of" tongue? In fact, as I learned, Krupin's doesn't ever bother with tongue; apparently (shocking!) it's rarely (once every 5 or so months) ordered. Even though it's on Krupin's borscht-belt, Grossinger's-style, ridiculously contrived menu. Hello, and call the FTC: false advertising. Aside from the fact that they don't carry at least a third of what's advertised, the corned beef at Krupin's is fey, limp, and too fatty; the pastrami tastes exactly like the corned beef (but lacking even pepper), and (get this) is imported from Baltimore, an exotic locale to the Krupins, but hardly the Mecca or Medina of deli. Avoid at all costs. But is there any chance we might have some decent deli south of Delancey (or south of Schwartz's smoked in la province)? Help!
