Did you know that roast-beef sandwiches are all the rage up in Beantown? We’ll be honest and say we’re not really sure what the fascination is, but it sounds like we’re going to get a chance to try the real deal and find out for ourselves. EV Grieve says Harrison’s, based in North Andover, Massachusetts, will bring its beef to a new literary café in the Bowery Poetry Club. So, what do you think? Will roast-beef sandwiches be the next big thing here? Or, like Johnny Damon, will they arrive in New York, have a few okay years, then get shipped off to Detroit? [EV Grieve]
