This place is on the way home from my mom's, it's a long drive to Long Beach and a woman needs a snack. I'd like to try a Johnny Apple Cheese without the pastrami. Sometimes simple is best.
Stopped in today. I have to say it was pretty damn tasty. Got the Johnny Apple Cheese and the Latke bites. Both were great. If I had a tiny tiny complaint it would be that they could add a tiny more pastrami but seriously it was damn tasty and I was stuffed. Very balanced sandwich and those latke balls are dangerously good, like crispier latkes.
Next time I might try making a custom grilled cheese.

I loved the latkes as always but I thought the Johnny Apple Cheese was very fatty; mostly fat, not nearly enough pastrami. Honestly, the cheese and mustard combination was quite awesome. I might ask for Johnny Apple Cheese, hold the meat next time.
I wished I had gotten the Cuban Reuben. My dining companion did and I kept gazing in his direction. Other two in my party got the classic short rib (Champ). I historically have liked that one too other than the nuts in the bread (not usually a fan of nut bread).
However, the service at the Melrose Umbrella Company was appalling. Not only is a $28 Lagavulin pour very tiny, but they tried to charge us $30 because it was "neat", not on rocks. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I thought my SO was going to blow a gasket. We used to be regulars at Foundry...
I had some food delivered from Lenny's Deli a few days ago. I got the "Emmy" sandwich, which is 1/2 pastrami and 1/2 corned beef with Swiss cheese and Russian dressing on rye. By the time the sandwich arrived everything had "melded" together like a Vulcan mind deal...it was spectacularly greasy, a little moist and just about slid down my throat like it was going home to Valhalla...I think I moaned with pleasure at least 3 or 4 times as I consumed it.
