Mr. J’s Restaurant Update

Our man with cam tours the local culinary scene, pondering Siggy’s application to maintain its outdoor tables, taking a look inside Colonie, and returning to Mile End, where he heeds Felix Unger’s injunction: “Don’t forget to look at my meat!”. He doesn’t just look; he tastes. For his verdict, see the video after the jump.

    Looks like Harold’s in Edison, NJ, my husband’s favorite restaurant. The sandwich looks great – I’ll have to try it, but as take-out since it includes my week’s ration of meat. Glad you returned to Mile End for the update. Thanx, Karl

    So how much did that sandwich cost?

    And worth every cent.

    I’m pretty sure that’s not poutine. Poutine is french fries, cheese curds, and gravy. I suspect that’s their Smoked Meat Hash.

    Regardless, I’m glad you revisited (and so soon). The sandwiches may seem a little on the small side depending on your expectations (either of sandwiches or for the price). I found them to be near the perfect size, given how much meat (and grease) is on that platter.
