<<Is there a link to that ‘hero story’ or can you give us a thumbnail of the places your liked?
The Times only archives it free articles for about 2 weeks, so you’re out of luck there.
I’m probably not supposed to turn this thread into a discussion of Hero places, but here’s a few that he mentioned which were new to me:
Lioni, 7803 15th Avenue, Brooklyn. This one really got me, I grew up just about 5 blocks from there and never heard of this place until the article. Place is at least 75 years old. Extensive menu of take out heros. I hate to think of all the lousy heros I ate from various joints along 13th avenue in my youth, when I could have been going to Lioni’s.
Clemente’s – 130 Avenue T, Brooklyn. Maybe the best Hot Roast Beef Hero I’ve ever had.
Ba Xuyen – 4222 8th Avenue Brooklyn. A new treat for me, Vietnamese Heros. Very different, and terrific!
Hope this helps. —Ken
