Loeb's for Lunch

Walking back from a conference, I passed by the line of food trucks on 17th Street and stopped in Loeb's to pickup some comfort food. Their menu's a bit convoluted for the uninitiated, since the sandwiches all have fancy names.
 Matzo ball soup
Really lovely. Comforting chicken broth with a nice and soft matzo ball.
 The Loeb
I was looking for a corn beef reuben to satisfy a craving from my first job as a waitress.
This meat was a bit saltier than I prefer, but the combination with the sauerkraut and Russian dressing is undeniably appealing. I also like that the sandwich is grilled on the flat top. I don't like the ones with merely toasted bread. The Loeb sandwich is a bit on the heavy side, but enjoyable.
