As always pastrami was on point. I haven’t been here for a while but each time in CT it’s always a quintessential pleasure to get a sandwich here. Hasn’t lost a step. Worth going out of your way for.

Hey Alex, Thanks for the great review. Yes that is the only parking lot we have and the way it was built in 1894ish. So we are limited on space especially sharing with the other businesses in the plaza.
