This concerns beef and bread. Together, in sandwich form.
This concerns a new sandwich shop called Beef ’n Bread, now soft-open in Chinatown from the guys behind Wiseguy NY Pizza down the street.
There aren’t many frills here in this corner space. Just a few stools near each window, plus a communal table outside. You’ll see white tile, a cow skull and a John Wayne poster on the wall. Because why not.
But you’re not here for the decor. You’re here for the sandwiches. You’ll pick one up. It’ll be heavy. The bun will leave a welcome butteriness on your fingers. And it’ll be filled with house-roasted roast beef, corned beef and turkey, but also such curveballs as hoisin sauce, onion rings and cream cheese. Take a look at all the meaty glory here.
Basically, it’s the kind of stuff you’ll want to pair with a banana-pudding milkshake at 3am. Which is good, because they’ll be open until 4 on weekends soon. And they have banana-pudding milkshakes.
But if you have to be up early, well, a roast-beef sandwich with eggs, cheese and hash browns can get rid of the pain.
Some of it, anyway.
