McSweeney's "Missed Food Connections"

Desperately seeking sandwich.
Desperately seeking sandwich.

You know the story: Boy meets grilled meat late one night, boy eats said grilled meat, boy never gets to taste that grilled meat again. It's a tale as old as eating out. McSweeney's has a lovely ode to such star-crossed food-lover stories. Here's an excerpt:

"You were sitting in the window of that French restaurant on Broadway, cute as a button in a tiny ceramic pot. They just don't make french onion soup like you anymore. Are you on the menu, or just a daily special? Will I ever get to hold your handle?"
