Crescent Moon ships its legendary The Original Blackstone Reuben Sandwich Kit nationwide on Goldbelly! Indulge in slow roasted in-house corned beef brisket, locally baked marble rye bread, secret sauerkraut blend, Swiss cheese, and extra rich thousand island dressing.
As legend has it, the Reuben sandwich was created at a poker game in Omaha’s Blackstone Hotel in the 1920s. Reuben Kulakofsky was one of a group of men who regularly played late-night poker with hotel owner Charles Schimmel. They would save a few nickels and dimes from each hand and call down to the kitchen for a midnight snack of meats and breads. Kulakofsky came up with a sandwich everyone loved so much the hotel owner put it on the regular menu, calling it The Reuben. Today, Omaha, Nebraska’s Crescent Moon Alehouse — located across the street from where the Blackstone Hotel stood—serves up a reuben using the original recipe that’s heralded as one of the nation’s top sandwiches. Crescent Moon has been featured on Eater, USA Today, CNN, The Cooking Channel and more. In a Omaha World Herald taste test with the family of the Reuben’s creator, The Crescent Moon was by far the favorite in a city filled with Reubens.

Assembling Your Sandwich

- Heat for 4 minutes then flip the bread and cook an additional 2-3 minutes
