Best Reuben in town?

My friends and I are in search for the best reuben in the Boston Area. We have tried a variety all over. What do you all think?

  1. Sam La Grassa's in Downtown Crossing
    Michael's Deli in Coolidge Corner
    Union Bar & Grill in the South End
    Jim's Deli in Brighton Center
    Pops Restaurant in the South End (not on the current menu)
    Highland Kitchen in Somerville (an interesting variant with roast pork on French bread they call a Cuban Reuben).

      Thank you for thisinformation...I've had a helluva time getting good Reubens even down the road where You-Know_Who plays baseball. It's a shame, really....I'm a curmudgeon, of course, but it seems to me that the good sandwiches and deli stuff we took fro granted on the East Coast (defined for these purposes as, essentially, Philadelphia to Boston) have become rare. New shops trying to do it are to be appreciated but it is a shame we have to "go back" to the old days.

    2. Check out The Paramount on Beacon Hill (only at lunchtime though). Everything that The Paramount touches turns to gold.

      All-Star Sandwich Bar in Inman Square also serves a reuben, but I haven't had it.

      1. The Pastrami Reuben @ Jerne in the Ritz is excellent.
