A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Brisket Sandwich at Fatty 'Cue West Village

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.

Fatty 'Cue's barbecue carries a Southeast Asian fishy funk, and their brisket is no exception. The Smoked Brisket Sandwich ($12), a staple of the Brooklyn location, is now available on the West Village restaurant's lunch menu for a limited time.

The brisket brisket is beefy, fish-sauce-tinged, and tender, with just the right amount of fat to make each bite satisfyingly rich. A thick layer of melted cheddar coats the sandwich, as does a hefty slathering of mayo (perhaps too hefty for some). Cilantro, pickled onions, and cucumbers add freshness and crunch, and toasted Parisi bread does a nice job of holding up to the fillings without becoming soggy. I'd be happy eating this sandwich any day I have a 'cue craving. Just ask them to go easy on the mayo.
