We ordered lunch takeout this week at Shapiro's. First experience goes like this,
the pastrami on rye was waytoo fatty and the rye too soft to hold up to the poorly sliced meat.
Potatoe knish was not made in house, easily found at any food market but filled our bellies since the sandwich was poor.
Pickle and coleslaw is supposed to come with the sandwich and both were missing.
Soup of the day was cream of asparagus and was not creamy. Thin base with large chunks of vegetables. Watery.
Since we were still in town after lunch we stopped back to let them know about the absent items and disappointing sandwich. Didn't bother bringing up the soup. The gentlemen who made our original lunch order immediately offered coleslaw, pickles and a quart of matzo ball soup to take home which we enjoyed much later that night for dinner. The matzo ball soup not only had two large dumplings but the addition of carrot, egg noodles and onion in the broth. While tastier than the lunch soup, I think their chicken noodle doubles as matzo ball soup.
We gave Shapiro's a try after reading how excited the community was to have a local Jewish deli. The owners have many kinks to work out. While we were there for lunch, the dining room, with at least four bored wait staff, was empty..all takeout orders.
Has anyone else tried any items from this new deli?
