  1. It is walking distance from my new house so I've eaten through about a third of the menu...

    When they have the Reuben as a special, it is quite good with very large portions of moist meat and a nice Russian dressing. I'm not sure where they get their bread, but it was decent, but not that memorable.

    Last weekend, after Dream Machines, my fiance and I shared their version of a Cuban and I found the pork a little on the dry side, but my fiance loved it. They served it on a roll which neither added nor detracted from the sandwich.

    And there was one occasion where I ordered a hot pastrami in rye and they completely screwed up and served it on sourdough.

    Overall, thumbs up, I suppose, but it makes me long for the sandwiches in New York (never had a great sandwich in San Francisco except at Naked Lunch).
