Fingerling Steak Sandwich

BerkshireTsarina | Jan 6, 2008 06:27 PM

Does anyone else remember the days before I-95 and the MA Turnpike, when Route 15 into Route 5 (or was it Route 9?) was how you got from Long Island to Boston? The long drive would get more interesting somewhere above Meriden CT where there was a roadside restaurant, small and plain, that only made fingerling steak sandwiches. They were cheap, and they were delicious. I don't know what kind of meat it was, or why it was called a fingerling steak; I only know it was great and every once in a while I get a nostalgic yen for one. If anyone else is as old as I am, and remembers, would you please share your reminiscence? Or maybe (fingers crossed) you know somewhere that offers a reasonable substitute?
