I found this experience highly entertaining. like immersion in an snl skit. Walked in with sunglasses and was asked if I "sold the crack". Hilarious. More so the crack dealers / wannabees in front of me got more of it. The sandwich guy was takin the piss outa them. "you bring me rock, I give you discotunt". Lot's of gay sex humour. when my wife I walked in we got "it's no longer a gay deli a woman is here. Self depricating humour about homosexuality. Sandwich man explained to the Filipino group how when he lived in Saudi, when the Filipino's got arrested the police always buggered them but but when he was arrested he was deemed too hairy. Startded to seem possibley offesvive then he lectured the room on tolerance. "Some people look for faults in the behavour and personal lives of others". This guy is not a bigot, he just likes to push buttons and see the reaction. He asked my wife permission to tell a story involving rimjobs and flatuence.
Oh yeah, sandwich.
You could basically survive 24 hrs on this sandwich. I needed two go's 5 hours apart to finish it. Meat two inches thick plus one inch of cheese. Fresh bun. Could easily be shared. it would cost $6 to reproduce this $7 sandwich.
Hilarious, stupidly huge sandwich.
can't wait to share one.

I've eaten here eight or nine times over the last four years and they have been very consistent with regards to high food quality and good service. The ambiance is french bistro, including the music. Not a large place, pretty much every table is within fifteen feet of the bar.
The food is more simple french rather than over the top fusion stuff or exotic ingredients. Very fresh, mainly local stuff, executed flawlessly. Fair bit of seafood, always a braised dish and the steak frites. The steaks are usually the only thing over $20. On one hand their style of cooking really showcases the quality of the ingredients, but on the other hand I sometimes like some stronger flavours as an option. This is why I don't eat here a more often. The value for money is quite high.
Any wine here is available by the glass if you order two glasses and the somelier is good.
Lots of belgian and other interesting beers too.
And uncommon french cheeses for dessert if you want.
