Saw on Yelp many positive reviews on Gherkins Sandwich Shop. Any hounds been there?
Gherkins Sandwich Shop
171 7th St
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).
