There's this guy opening a roast-beef restaurant in Washington, DC who says his recipes were inspired by his time in Boston:

Beef n Bread is a fast casual down to earth sandwich shop inspired from living in Boston (what pizza is to New Yorkers, Roast beef is to Bostonians) I lived there like 4 years. ...

Whalehead King explains why that's the guy on the sign at Royal Roast Beef on Bennington Street:

... Is this crown prince/clown prince kissing his sandwich or sucking a thin slice or rare beef out from between the bun? Maybe a little bit of both. You'll try to do both too when you get one of these sandwiches between your mitts. ...
