I liked my Reuben sandwich, although it did deviate from the classic in a couple of ways. First, the bread wasn't toasted or grilled and there were grilled red onions and a tomato on there. Talking with Chris afterwards he said there wasn't supposed to be tomato, and it was supposed to be grilled, so I guess the old bugaboos of consistency and management never go away. However, the bread, kraut and pastrami (Niman Ranch) were all top notch, and I liked the depth the onions gave to the kraut. Not too expensive, and happens to be located near enough where I work and my wife works. I'm sure we'll be back.
And congrats again on your engagement, Chris!

I hope you find something else soon, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Well, I guess I'm not too shocked, 'cause the whole 'giant warehouse rental space' seemed to me like a very iffy proposition that I would be surprised if it lasts. Especially because I've never seen anybody actually in there renting it. I guess I just didn't extrapolate that out to the cafe's position being precarious and likely to go first when the inevitable belt-tightening before the closure starts. I had hoped it was an actual profit center that could help the whole endeavor.
