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.
It was quite recently that I fell in love with the Beef on Weck, a Buffalo-area classic sandwich of thinly sliced roast beef on a caraway-salt roll, with horseradish on top or alongside. (We even visited Buffalo to track down our favorites.) It's been hard to find one in New York City, and while the beef on weck at Brooklyn's Bonnie's Grill ($9.95) isn't the best I've ever had, it's a more than satisfactory representation of the form. Salty, juicy roast beef is piled high on a roll that's amply salted and seeded (though I'm not sure what those poppy seeds were doing there); the horseradish was fresh-tasting and sinus-clearing. While it could've been a little pinker and a little meatier, it's still a great pile of beef, and a mighty tasty sandwich.
