So fans of this site (both of you) will be well familiar with my ongoing quest for the perfect Reuben sandwich, which has been thwarted at every turn by parvenu Brits and others who wouldn’t know a New York deli sandwich if it bit them.
Well, the quest — for the moment — appears to be over, and we now have a front-runner in ReubenQuest 2012: Spilling the Beans Cafe on Clarence Street in the CBD.
I went in the other day on a tip from a commenter, and here’s what I got:
A proper Reuben. Thick slabs of corned beef (honestly, they could have been thinner, but they were oh-so-tender). Sauerkraut. Proper Russian dressing. Great rye bread.
