Start the week with a big, juicy roast beef sandwich from Salumeria Biellese. The deli's Monday special is $6.50 for a four-incher, which is plenty enough for one person, and you can easily split the six-inch large ($7.75) into two halves. It's a great version of the classic Brooklyn roast beef sub with drippy brown gravy, which probably got its start at the original Defonte's in Red Hook. Salumeria Biellese will let you pick any bread or cheese, but go with the purist approach—a sesame seedy French loaf, which has the right thickness to soak up all the meat juices, and the fresh mozzarella (an extra $1.50). Salumeria Biellese doesn't do the thick gravy—they pour on something of a pan jus instead, giving it a French dip effect.
