Meat and Bread: The Brisket Sandwich from D’Bronx

D’Bronx on Bell is a place that would be right at home in a college town. The menu is large, varied and affordable. The vibe is casual and even playful, and the food is good.


If you dig deeper into the menu than their decent approximation of New York style pizza, you can find some very nice items. For instance the brisket sandwich which consists of chunks of tender braised beef, deli style mustard and nothing else.

It takes some balls to put a sandwich like this on your menu. And I love it. Something about a sandwich comprised of just meat and bread allows the ingredients to speak for themselves. No cheese, no tomato, no lettuce, no cole slaw, no caramelized onions–just tender chopped beef and good mustard. Like the best corned beef sandwiches at a Jewish deli, you don’t need anything else.
