My awesome daughter Elisabeth texted me that she and fiance George would be coming over on a day of my choice with sandwiches from Touch of Broadway Delicatessen.
Thank you, giver of the gift card.
On the chosen day, I texted back my request for hot pastrami with sauerkraut, provolone and spicy mustard on dark rye.
The kids arrived with a big bag of goodies.
In addition to our sandwiches, they’d filled the paper sack with potato knishes for Elisabeth and I and half-sour pickles for all three of us.
Turkey was my daughter’s sandwich choice.
George went for a traditional Reuben.
We were all satisfied.
The next day I was able to bring half my sandwich and knish to work for my lunch. That’s how big I found the sandwiches.
Elisabeth told me our sandwich size was large, one step below colossal.
After we were done, we all decided that …
As full and happy as we were, we still like the sandwiches from The Brooklyn Pickle better.
