Roast Beef Poor Boy @ Tracey’s
Tracey’s is a revived name from an Irish Channel bar from long ago. Its management operated Parasol’s for many years, until a disagreement with the landlord caused them to move and change names. However, if you have a fond memory of a roast beef poor boy at Parasol’s, you will recognize the flavor of Tracey’s. You order at the window in the back, grab a beer from the bar, pick up, and eat a poor boy in the old style. Which is to say, “in a bar.” all the best early poor boys came from bars.
