Andy Fisher always stands on a small cooler, perched high above the counter, to watch while his orders are sliced.
“You need to install TV screens to broadcast the slicing,” he implores. “We could follow different slicers on different screens while we wait! People will tune in at home too!”
Another of Andy’s ideas, though, is truly a prize winner. “Lox Populi,” his submission to our Name the Russ & Daughters Blog Contest, is the one we chose. It was a tough race. We received lots of entries and we plan to use some of the great runners-up to title blog features and posts in the future.
We asked Andy about it recently, after he stepped down from his counter-side perch, and he explained that he chose “Lox Populi,” in part because he isn’t totally fond of one of the slogans we have hanging in the store — “Lox Et Veritas,” or “Lox and Truth.” We challenged this, of course, and he countered that as the owner of Astor Wines and Astor Center, he prefers “In Vino Veritas,” instead.
