Best Sausage/Peppers hero--gone forever?
- Tom Steele
I used to work near the corner of Broadway and 25th Street, just off Madison Park, and there was a chow wagon with a big red-faced Lithuanian (?) cook sweating and slaving away inside. He had burgers marinated in white wine and garlic, and the best sausage (Ehmer) and peppers and onions on a grilled split hero I have ever tasted, for $3. I had one nearly every day, and so did several long lines of other people.
Well, my company folded three years ago, and when I returned to the neighborhood, he and his wagon were nowhere to be found.
Does this ring any gustatory bells for anyone? The guy wasn't exactly young--perhaps he retired. But any info would be appreciated.
