Deli ditches ‘the Freundel’ after Georgetown rabbi is accused of voyeurism
First his job, now his sandwich. Georgetown rabbi Barry Freundel‘s life is unwinding after his arrest for voyeurism following a police investigation of his home two weeks ago. Foggy Bottom deli Char Bar and Eli’s Market changed the name of one of their sandwiches following Freundel’s arrest.
Formerly “the Freundel,” the grilled pastrami and smoked turkey sandwich with chipotle on toast now goes by the uncreative and inoffensive moniker “the Georgetowner.”
The whole thing makes Vox wonder how Epicurean was able to keep their Jack the Bulldog sandwich after the former mascot retired in disgrace after biting someone.
Maybe Freundel, however, isn’t taking the sandwich business that hard. He actually may hate that particular sandwich.
