I had it a few years ago at a wedding in London. It was served up by a caterer who is deemed to be the top kosher caterer in the UK. It was awful. Far too rich. Many of us sent it back for a plate of smoked salmon instead.
You have to know how to eat it. It's not cholent. Actually now I remember that I too had it in London and wasn't so great. But was awesome in Paris

Overpriced and portions far too small. Considering the salt beef and pastrami you guys get in NY, I'm amazed how much you rate Reubens. It's not thought of highly by the UK kehilla.
