Dunn's deli

A branch of Dunn's from Montreal opens Nov 16 at 827 Seymour(a few metres south of Robson). Hopefully, they'll live up to my standards as an ex Montrealer, which no place has done in the Vancouver area. They replied to my email that they have sent to Montreal to train hand cutting in order to satisfy clients' requests for lean, medium or fat smoked meat sandwiches. If they are like the original Montreal Dunn's, they'll also have the dense heavy New York style cheesecake.

      Dunn's wasn't my first choice. It was The Main(you never had to wait except at 3am, it open 24 hours & you can get latkas & verenikas), followed by Schwartz's.Dunn's was if I wanted a cheesecake as well. Ben's(now demolished)was for the atmosphere.

        You know I think I mixed up Ben's and Dunn's. Dunn's on St. Catherines and Ben's the great big room with the pictures of all the stars you couldn't place?
