Hot Dining: East Meats West at Dunn’s Famous

Ever since iconic Dunn’s Famous dropped anchor downtown, next door to the Orpheum Theatre, smoked-meat fans have been ecstatic. The no-nonsense, casual deli uses the same hand-cut steamed brisket here as in hometown Montreal. Faves range from the legendary classic smoked meat on sourdough to the Reuben with sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, Swiss cheese and a double stack of smoked meat. Also not to be missed: the diet-defying strawberry cheesecake and hot fudge chocolate sundae.—Tim Pawsey
