Red Squirrel

Ok.. lets go back a few years.. I know there are some of these still around in Cincinnati, but does anyone remember them (Red Squirrel) being anywhere else. They had the best deli sandwiches that I have ever had. The meat was mounded on the bread with cheese and whatever else you wanted. Any memories?

    Boy, you had me there for a moment. When I saw Red Squirrel under sandwiches I thought it was going to be about red squirrel sandwiches. I'll admit I've never had a red squirrel sandwich, but I have used gray squirrel for sandwiches, and considering that red squirrels, or fox squirrels, taste the same as grays I was going to suggest that it would make for a fine sandwich. Oh, well.

    A couple of squirrels cut up and fried, and served with gravy and mashed potatoes deserves better than cheerleading competition. I can see having roasted squirrel brain as a snack while watching such competitions, though.

    startrooper00, I am very familiar with the Red Squirrel brand. I remember eating at one in downtown Cincinnati back in 1990 before a Reds game--the first game of the World Series and they beat the Oakland A's, ultimately winning the Series 4 games to 0!

    Other than that, I have eaten at their Fairfield location a number of times, the most recent being September 2000.

    Oh, and the chain is on the Web at http://www.redsquirrel.org/!

    The red squirrels we've been talking about, which are really fox squirrels, Sciurus niger , do exist in California. There are introduced populations of this species in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.

    Don't forget the sauce for that Red Squirrel Sandwich:

    Red Eye Cardinal Gravy

    2 Cardinals, plucked and prepared for cooking.

    3 thickly sliced pieces of bacon

    1 small onion, diced

    8 oz brewed coffee

    4 TBS flour

    Method;

    In a cast iron pan slowly fry bacon on low heat. add onions and Cardinals. Slowly add flour to pan stiring constantly. Slowly add coffee. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove Cardinals, debone and add meat to the gravy. Simmer until thickened.

    Your Red Squirrel sandwich is ready for the perfect topping. Red Eye Cardinal Gravy.

    Considering that the cardinal is not a gamebird you might want to try something else.

    As a former resident of Cincinnati, I also have eaten at the Red Squirel. Very good deckers. I liked there BLT's. I used to eat at one right downtown. I do not know if it is still there.

    It most certainly is, on Walnut between 4th and 3rd, more or less right across from the Dixie Terminal building

    There is another on Vine between 6th and 7th.
