A Sandwich A Day: Fish Sandwich at DuMont Burger in Williamsburg

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year--so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know.—The Mgmt.

DuMont Burger rightfully gets its name for its commendable burgers, the crowning dish gracing many a best NYC burger list. And fortunately for us sandwich fiends, the menu has a few good options in the mix, which also pull their weight in drawing loyal fans to this cozy Williamsburg bar/restaurant.

The fish sandwich ($14) holds its own fairly well, all deep fried richness ensconced in a bun. It's a simple assembly of fried skate and homemade tartar sauce (served on the side, better poured on top of the fish) between a lightly toasted fluffy brioche bun. There's a whole lot of skate in this sandwich, making it a daunting challenge to hold with two hands. The fish is tender and flavorful, and manages to avoid being overcooked, despite the delightfully crispy exterior.

Accompanying the sandwich comes a choice of soup, mixed green salad, fries, or onion rings. The fries are deserving of a glowing recommendation: they're hand-cut, salted moderately, and served generously. The tartar sauce is a versatile dipping sauce as well.
