Reubens, London – so much more than just a sandwich

Update:  Reubens reopened in August 2019 under new ownership. The review below is based on the previous owners who ran the restaurant for 37 years until May 2019 when one of the owners died and the rest of the family closed the restarant.

For most Americans, the name Reuben is synonymous with an American grilled sandwich made of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing, grilled between slices of rye bread. Kosher Jews adapted the sandwich and eat it without the cheese. Reubens Restaurant & Deli in London is famous for their salt beef (English for corned beef) sandwich, but I recently discovered that it is so much more.

Reubens is the longest standing kosher restaurant in London and the only kosher restaurant in central London, just 10 minutes’ walk from the main shopping area of Oxford Street. I had been to Reubens many times over the years but had always eaten at the upstairs deli and didn’t know what delights awaited me in the restaurant downstairs.
