Have you tried the Jeff Ruby?

Cincinnati’s most famous restaurateur knows a good meal when he sees one. On the recommendation of his friend Andy Furman (whose name also appears on the Izzy’s menu), Ruby created his own signature sandwich for his favorite Cincinnati deli. Like Mr. Ruby, this sandwich is larger than life. It’s really two sandwiches combined into one. The first sandwich is a delicious coleslaw and roast beef. The upper deck of this double decker is turkey, chopped liver spread, and Izzy’s famous dressing. Each layer would be more than enough on its own, but they combine like Voltron to form one of the most complex and tasty creations on the Izzy’s menu. It’s no Steak Collinsworth, but the JeffRuby at Izzy’s unlocks so much potential for other sandwich possibilities. I had not thought of chopped liver or coleslaw as a deli meat topping before, but I know I’ll try them again soon. This sandwich, like its creator, is one of a kind.

Celebrating Barry Larkin – Izzy’s style

It’s a huge weekend for all Cincinnati Reds fans, but especially for those of us who were too young to grow up with the Big Red Machine.  In many ways, Barry Larkin is OUR Hall of Famer, the first Red we grew up watching to be inducted into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. As a Cincinnati institution, Izzy’s makes it a point to honor Cincinnati icons like Barry Larkin. The newest sandwich in honor of #11 is not flashy, but gets the job done as well as any sandwich can. It features three of Izzy’s classic meats (pastrami, corned beef, and turkey) with melted swiss on grilled rye. This weekend, I recommend grabbing some Izzy’s carryout to celebrate Cincinnati, the Reds, and Barry Larkin. I’m proud to hail from the same hometown as the Hall of Fame shortstop. Izzy’s is, too!

The Cincinnality Gets its own Sandwich. Reviewed By Adam Turer.

Turkey and salami seemed an unlikely pairing, until I took my first bite of Izzy’s newest creation. Named after Fox19′s new Sunday night show, the Cincinnality is the only Izzy’s sandwich served on an onion roll. The roll coupled with the green olive topping make this a unique and very tasty sandwich worth checking out. I got to try it at an Izzy’s Craft Beer Dinner. If you haven’t attended one of those yet, you’re missing out.

The Zane Kadetz

Meatloaf is a classic comfort food. In honor of Izzy’s late grandson, the Zane puts a unique twist on the dish. The loaf is like an extra-tender burger patty. The sauce is tangy and reminds me of honey mustard. I love melted American cheese on meatloaf, so this was an easy dish to like. This is a popular choice among Izzy’s employees and after trying it, I’m not surprised.
