Best Sandwich - 2006
The Presidio, California Street Delicatessen & Cafe
Would a Reuben by any other name taste as sweet? The answer is yes, when it's the Presidio at the California Street Delicatessen & Cafe, a terrific, greasy amalgam of garlicky pastrami, melted Swiss cheese, tangy sauerkraut, and creamy Russian dressing on fresh-baked, sturdy rye bread. Its particular mix of textures and flavors sends a siren song our way, and we know from experience that it is eminently reheatable and nicely survives a trip across the city.
