Rant on Reuben Sandwiches [moved from Boston board]

the deli piece in the globe made me see red for a moment, and I don't mean in a good way. To test a jewish deli on a reuben is like testing a fine chinese restaurant on its lasagna. Reubens are the devil's own invention, having nothing to do with any standard jewish deli and imported from heaven knows where into non-kosher jewish delis where they remain a blot on good sense and balance. who adds bad swiss cheese to good corned beef? Adds more fat to a fine fatty meat? yech......As to the article itself, if you don't make your own chopped liver, try the Butcheries or Michael's Deli. As to chicken soup and matzoh balls, the only one I eat other than my own is New England Soup Factory. Why someone who knows nothing about food or delis gets to write about them will remain beyond my understanding. No Reubens!! No Rachels!
