          1. Just went and here it is.
            Pastrami sandwich( pastrami good sliced to big)
            MB Soup ( great no complaints)
            Bill= $22.98
            I heard allot of folks on the line saying this would be their last time without even eating.
            I work in the market and will not be returning.

              Wow, I'm guessing that it wasn't the greatest from what you heard, and posted. Yeah, I mean I was not impressed with them postponing the opening two times. If they couldnt get their act together on that, well then, I'm not expecting too many great things to come.

                Oh, also just curious, why would you not go back? Why were the other people saying that too?

                  Any sandwich is only worth as much as someone will pay for it. I will not pay $18.00 for THAT sandwich. The pastrami is on par with that of Katz however that sandwich is $4.00 more. The other folks on line were also a bit freaked by the price. Here is my take- Deep pockets 6 months any brains at all and they will only be here for three.
