A Sandwich A Day: Homemade Roast Beef at Stage Restaurant

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.

Upon learning that this luncheonette only serves its luscious pastrami and corned beef on Thursdays, several of us at Serious Eats World Headquarters were disappointed. But all was right again in the world when we were offered the option of homemade roast beef instead. Sliced thinly onto a kaiser roll and served with your choice of mayo or mustard, the sandwich may at first seem a bit small in size and spartan for its price tag ($8.20). But there's over an inch and a half of flavorful and moist roast beef in there, and it's plenty satisfying.
