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!


You know Adam Turer from his attempt to take down Izzy’s 110 Reuben on Travel Channel’s Man V Food Nation.  Join us as Izzy’s challenges Adam to eat  his way through Izzy’s menu in one year.  Adam will share his thoughts as he tries each and every Izzy menu item, while journeying to all local locations throughout the year. Got a specific twist or combination you want him to try?  Leave us a comment on our Facebook page or our twitter account and we will have him try it for you.  As we gave our challenge to Adam, we only had two words: COME HUNGRY!
