Who's Next Deli funny incident

Fargo | May 30, 2003 07:48 PM

So I'm ordering a knish at the Who's Next Deli in Northampton,MA today -- a place I've always wanted to like because we need a good deli around here, but I've always been disappointed with their lackluster offerings and tired-looking items in the display case -- and the sad, anorexic Goth girls who staff the counter are on the phone -- ordering lunch from the Haymarket Cafe next door!! I mean, how bad must the food be in a place, where you can ostensibly eat for free, that it would cause you to order takeout from a neighbor?!?! At first I thought it might be because they were vegetarians, but they were ordering turkey sandwiches!!

Oh and by the way, the potato and spinach knish was a nuked lead bomb of chalky potatoes, tiny flecks of something green -- spinach I guess, but it was hard to tell, and a gummy crust. Feh.
Has anyone ever gotten anything decent here? I'm about to give up.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
