One has to wonder if this beloved Jewish deli’s popularity with Chicago pols has something to do with the heft of its trademark sandwich. After all, there’s no better way to disarm a rival than to corner them while they’re trying to get their mouth around a nine-ounce pile of shaved corned beef. There’s not much else to the sandwich, just two slices of soft rye and a daub of piquant horseradish mustard if you’re so inclined. Anything more would distract from the simple pleasure of lots and lots of fatty meat. $15.95; 1141 S. Jefferson St., South Loop
