All Star Sandwiches

Officially, they are "opening" Monday, but they were open on Saturday, comping everyone's sandwiches and charging only for the sides. I had the pastrami, my bf had the cubano. The pastrami was excellent, on good rye bread with grainy horseradish mustard. My only complaint was that the bread was cut a little thick and the pastrami was not quite generous enough. If the bread had been cut thinner, or the meat had been thicker, the ratio would have been betterm and the sandwich would have been perfect. It was damn near close to perfect anyway.

Neither of us are experts on the Cuban sandwich, but it was tasty. My bf compaint was that they advertised a mango mayo (or something like that), and it wasn't really noticeable. Otherwise, very good.

I also got a side of coleslaw, which seemed a bit bland at first, then I found myself wanting more and more. We also got a chocolate chip cookies, which was fine, but not exceptional.

Despite the warnings that there might be delays, we were served quite quickly. The meats are very good. I'm looking forward to going back to try to the monte cristo, the beef on weck, the turkey with stuffing (I saw the stuffing, which looks great.)
