The Case of the Vanishing Sandwich at Ike's Place in San Fancisco
Peter Schrager at the Wall Street Journal investigates the case of the missing "Eli Manning" sandwich at Ike's Place in San Francisco:
At Ike's Place, the popular sandwich shop in San Francisco's Castro district, the city's top athletes are immortalized with sandwiches named after them. Hungry locals and sports-crazed visitors who have seen the restaurant on Travel Channel's "Man v. Food" reality show wait on lines that stretch for blocks to order the sandwich of their choice.
The Lincecum, The Steve Young, The Montana to Rice and The Barry B. are among the most popular items on the Ike's Place menu. And so is The Eli Manning.
The Eli Manning?
