Birth of Reuben

Birth of Reuben
Omaha has been raising Reuben since the beginning.  That’s right, the sandwich we all know and love was born right here – it doesn’t matter what New Yorkers say.  During a late night poker game at the Blackstone Hotel, a local grocer was asked to “ante up” and create a new dish.  The ingredients he had on hand resulted in an American menu staple.
