Great Shapiro's experience
I just went to Shapiro's in Indianapolis for the first time in years, and it's as good as ever. This time I took my dad - a native New Yorker and a tough critic of corned beef - to see what he thought. He agreed with me that the corned beef was better than any he'd had in the Midwest - even better than Manny's in Chicago. He also praised the rye bread, which was thick with nice crunchy edges. Definitely a million times better than the packaged stuff now used at even some NY delis. The chicken soup was excellent, as was the potato pancake and strawberry rhubarb pie. I wish it wasn't four hours away! Or maybe it's better that way -I'd weigh 300 pounds if it was here.
