Lenny's #1

In many ways, the sandwich is the perfect food. It's maneuverable, wholesome, portable, and when done right, absolutely delicious. It's f'n manly!

The premium sandwich chain Lenny's made this Dude one happy S.O.B.
I've only heard good/great things about this place... which in our world, falls dangerously close to blue-balling oneself.
One of the worst feelings is to fall short of gastronomic expectations.

But rest assured... Lenny's delivers in a big way.
The #1 (rightfully named) is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had.
This may be my second all time favorite sandwich in Manhattan. Second to the Pastrami Sandwich at Katz's Deli of course.
The #1 : Pastrami, Corned Beef, Coleslaw, Swiss Cheese and Russian Dressing.
All this deliciousness on a Roll. Sliced in two and perfectly manageable.

I can't wait to get my hands on another one of these bad boys.

Lenny's #1 is the greatest. A runner up would include G3 grilled roast beef with crispy bacon, melted American cheese, grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, pickles and A-1 steak sauce.

A few months ago, I was at Lenny's in Midtown and the cashier told me that Lenny was in the building. Lenny, who I believe is from Korea, was eating sandwiches with his family. He was nice enough to say hello to me. It was like meeting a celebrity.

Recently, I asked their manager if they are interested in franchising in Asia. Their meats, cheeses, and veggies are so thinly sliced--all fresh in the store. Their attention to detail would do well in Japan, I would think.
