In his heart of hearts I think Bernamoff thinks he's doing NYers a favor by serving us his sandwiches. I'm not sure if that attitude will be successful in winning hearts and minds.

His target audience only knows Katz's from the time their mom made them watch her favorite Rom Com on family night back in Shaker Heights.

They aren't invested in Katz's being the best- whether it is or isn't just isn't very important to them the way it is to you.
Why not mayo?

Have you ever met a Canadian who didn't think his purpose in life was to save America from itself?

Well sure. Look at Adrian. If he mentions Joe Beef one more time I'm going to put my head in the oven.

That would be really persuasive except for all those glowing posts I wrote about David's. I guess I'm not so in love with Katz's after all.

David's or Katz's, the idea that an outsider had to save NY Deli isn't problematic to them.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

(I usually use Joe Beef [along with a host of others] as an illustration that what a number of NYC restaurants are doing such as Roberta's, Ssam, and Torissi are doing that is considered at least very similar to what others are doing elsewhere - they're all part of the same broad chef crew off to the Finland Station or whatever)

Captain Canada!

Just kidding, of course. I find it hard to resist the opportunity for an easy joke.

Are they the stools Bernamoff mentioned in this interview?

“I think we might be losing the experimental battle a little bit,” he says. So he’s been mulling over a Plan B—namely, “a very minimal, teeny stool, tall but small. You would lean against it—you don’t totally set up shop on it.”

That will work. At long last our SeatGate nightmare is over.
