"New York may claim corned beef hegemony, but the Midwest is not to be slighted. Jake's in Milwaukee, Manny's in Chicago, and Shapiro's in Indianapolis are all worthy contenders for the nation's corned beef crown, and having just tackled what is billed as "the biggest ..."   [Read More]

Slyman's is located in an historic old building.  It's a shame I forgot to ask what it once was.
