Those bright orange '"Hot" Corned Beef' signs are hard to miss, so I stopped by Eat on Broadway to see what they had to offer.
It's a cute little restaurant, right in the middle of Bedford's downtown area (at 692 Broadway Avenue). I found easy parking, walked right in and ordered their Corned Beef sandwich (what else?!!) to go.
Open about a year, they seem to be part of the revitalization that this part of Bedford is experiencing.
They were doing a brisk business when I arrived and yet there was plenty of time for the banter between those on both sides of the counter. There are seats for about eight and a variety of choices for you if you're not into Corned Beef (anathema, I know). If I can find my menu, I'll scan it and post it here.
As far as the sandwich goes, I'm going to have to give Janine and Larry the benefit of the doubt and presume I had an unusual, bad cut of meat. It was not lean (gristle is more like it) and I was unable to finish a portion of it. On the other hand, I saw the Corned Beef come out of the container (6.5 ounces, I was told at the time) and perhaps it could have been caught at that point.
I'll just have to come back again and try another one! I'll let you know how that goes.
