We had a very good lunch. I enjoyed a Reuben sandwich. It was great. The coleslaw with it was very good. My wife had a Cuban sandwich and declared it better than those she has had made by Cubans. She had potato salad and cole slaw and liked both. One of our friends had soup which looked good. We split a chocolate cream pie dessert and enjoyed it too. We reviewed the dinner menu and it looks wonderful. Unfortunately there is no wine or beer to go with good food. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I would return for lunch but the dinner menu wouldn't seem right without some wine.

Once we had seen this place's Shalom Amigos sign we couldn't resist trying it out. It seemed to us to capture the essence of the today's multi-cultural society. It is a Jewish-Puerto Rican restaurant and the menu reflects both cultures. We had matzoh-ball soup and shared a Reuben; the soup was excellent with lots of chicken meat. The matzoh balls were light but stayed together well. The soup portions were enormous; the larger bowl is a meal by itself. The Reuben served with homemade potato salad and cole slaw both of which were very good, but the sandwich, itself, was not as successfully executed. The corned beef was densely stacked on small pieces of bread that simply were not the rye bread usually associated with a Reuben. Although it wasn't bad it didn't have the traditional taste, nor was it an improvement IMHO.

To us, the Reuben exemplifies the issue this restaurant needs to confront: Is it a restaurant that serves food from two cultures or does it focus on bringing the two cultures together through innovative creations? At present, it is sort of following the first path but seems like it wants to be going down the second. It needs to decide which road it is on.
