    Oh boy! Their Pretzel Paroxysm with turkey, white cheddar, bacon and tomato relish grilled on a traditional pretzel is the one I have my eye on this year.
    Also any grilled cheese from the menu can be made on matzah for Passover.

          Anyone had the Cuban sandwich? I'm curious....
          I'm much closer to Clementine's than Porto's....

            I had the Cuban to go. Even cooled down after the ride home it was delicious. Real ingredients. Carefully prepared. Clementine staff tend to make sandwiches as if they are going to eat it themselves - with care, and plentiful fillings. Keep it up.

                  Took me a few extra days to get there....but finally had the Cuban sandwich today. Very good. Not quite Porto's....but I was very happy. Though I was reminded of my one complaint about Clementine's....service can be lacking. I'm there quite a bit. I live in the neighborhood and can walk there. I find the servers to be very nice, and they do care about the food....but there can be lots of socializing in lieu of service. They "forgot" about my order (it's happened before) and it took a ridiculous amount of time.
                  That said....I'll keep going back, because i love the food.

                    Portos medianoche = less than $6

                    Me and the GF have been trying to get here since last week, man their hours suck! We'll be coming in on Saturday instead.
