“I was so nervous about the name that I emailed my rabbi.” That’s Ira Freehof, owner of the newly opened Comfort Diner on New York’s Lower East Side, speaking about his Jewish/Cuban mashup. Said the rabbi, “It’s in good humor — it’s OK.” The Jewbano starts with a roll from nearby Kossar’s Bialys. The roll is stuffed with pastrami from Katz’s around the corner, pickles from The Pickle Guys up the street, roast turkey, Swiss cheese, and deli mustard. Then it’s grilled in a press like a regular Cubano. Now that sounds like good eating! Read more about Comfort Diner in this Jewish Daily Forward story.
