Anyone remember the G.A.Deli on Taylor?

I'm looking for a deli that measures up to the Great American Deli on W. Taylor St., a fantastic place to get an Italian Sub with high-quality ingredients until it closed down some time ago. Dad used to take us there regularly, with side stops at Al's for a bag of fries and Mario's for Italian lemonade.

The G.A.D.'s downfall couldn't have been the quality. It must have been the location or the fact that you'd pay the same 2 or 3 bucks from the time I was a kid up through my 20s, or both. Did the owner have an apprentice or something? Please tell me somewhere within the city limits (dare I hope, within the same region?) there's another quality deli.

And don't say Manny's!

Much obliged :)
