I had to go and buy that famous pork one last time, a sandwich wouldn’t do….. I had to get the quart and a small part of me thought, I’ll freeze some for a cold winter day when that pork would really hit the spot. Yeah, that didn’t work. I bought the quart, picked up some Conshohocken Italian Bakery rolls and made a little pork on New Year’s Eve. My family smelled what was cooking and swarmed me… so we had all of it in one sitting, well, maybe, just maybe I stashed away enough for a sandwich I had the next day, but don’t tell anyone in my house.
I had to wait a few days to write this. I’ll be honest, I thought there was a chance to save Lenny’s and I was hoping to write something about a new plan that would keep Lenny’s in place, but it just didn’t work out.
Lenny loved being in the heart of Conshohocken, really loved his customers and in a perfect world he’d be making that pork or a cheesesteak right now as opposed to cleaning out the deli. I know I didn’t get there enough, but every time I was there I enjoyed a conversation or at the very least a great sandwich.
Lenny, while I don’t speak for everyone in the community, but I know I speak for at least a good portion of the people that had the pleasure of knowing you and your delicious menu. Thank you, best of luck in everything you do. You can always stop in the shop and say hi if you’re in the area.
