After playing piccolo on a Brooklyn Youth Chorus concert at Long Island University tonight, I crossed Flatbush and had dinner at Junior’s, for the first time in many years. Afterwards, I could only wonder why I had waited so long. For a cup of comforting split pea soup, a delicious tongue sandwich, and two iced teas, plus a side of gracious service and an atmosphere of celebration that left a smile on my face, I paid $21 including tip. It’s no wonder that this establishment is a landmark and still a favorite with people out for a good time.
