Guess where I'm eating a Reuben sandwich...and eavesdropping on a sex conversation?

The sandwich -- a Reuben-like creation with housemade Thousand Island dressing -- was good, but it was the conversation between a straight man and a bisexual woman, who was discussing whether her sex is better with men or women that kept me lingering at the one table that doubles as a communal eavesdropping perch.

Maybe the conversation was supposed to melt the cheese?

Not a reuben in the pic - a reuben has russian dressing (not thousand island) and that doesn't look like rye bread.  Also, the cheese doesn't look melted.  Why is it so hard for restaurants to get something as simple as a reuben right?

 @monopod Hey monopod. You said its not a Reuben in the pic. You are right! Its called "The Curtis" down at curtis park deli. Go try it its great. Was not supposed to be a reuben. So yes those guys down there got something so simple SO right.

 @monopod That's a pretty silly distinction to make, as Thousand Island is essentially a variant of Russian Dressing.  Plus wiki describes a reuben as "a hot sandwich of corned beef, Swiss cheese, with Russian or Thousand Island dressing, and sauerkraut. These are grilled between slices of rye bread."

 

I do agree that being a hot sandwich with melted cheese is pretty key to the whole Reuben program.  But still, "getting it right" is really just making it taste good and fairly describing the sandwich in the menu so people know what they are getting.  Other than that, who cares?
