Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben: Lean corned beef stacked with kraut and Swiss on dark rye toast with your choice of Russian or 1000 Island dressing

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was cut in half somewhat diagonally and presented on wax paper on a wicker plate next to potato chips and a pickle spear. The sandwich had Russian dressing applied to the bottom slice of Rye, followed by a stack of corned beef. Atop the beef was a layer of sauerkraut covered by a large slice of Swiss cheese.

Reuben Ruminations:

: There is a beautiful outdoor courtyard area in front of the store where you can eat, or you can eat in the store itself. Half of the place is a dining room and the other half is a deli/grocry/bar/wine store selling cheese and other gourmet food. Located in quaint Mariemont along US 50, it is hidden behind the Mariemont Inn. They had a flier on the table claiming "We put the 'deli' in delirium". I had my Reuben with the Russian dressing option, and it was so lightly applied to be almost unnoticeable. There was a huge stack of corned beef on this sandwich. There was a liberal supply of sauerkraut and the Swiss cheese was superb. I think the Swiss must have been one of their gourmet cheeses freshly sliced, so it was excellent. The beef definitely wouldn't be confused for pastrami. It had a sharp corned beef flavor. I was in a hurry this day, and they accommodated me nicely. If you're on the east side of Cincinnati, I suggest a trip to Mariemont for a good quality Reuben sandwich. ()
