This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef

This dingy nook from the team behind Artichoke serves a limited roster of messy sandwiches and trashy sides (mayo-sopped potato salad, fat boardwalk fries). “Yo, I’ll have a This Way” yields the best thing in the joint, a squishy sesame-seed bun soaked in meat drippings and filled with thinly-sliced roast beef slathered in Cheez Whiz. If you prefer your roast beef thick-cut and drowning in insipid brown gravy, you’ll order it That Way. And if you’re not in the mood for roast beef (and not up for a trek to Katz’s) you might try the Other Thing, perfectly delicious fatty pastrami that, in an almost criminal act of deli defilement, comes heaped in creamy coleslaw.
