Best Roast Beef hero (2008)

Clemente's

Forget the lettuce, forget the tomato, and, especially, forget the mayo at CLEMENTE'S, an ancient Brooklyn hero shop that begins with a good Italian loaf, piles on the tender roast beef, still barely pink in the middle, then opens the gravy spigots and flows the good brown stuff all over the meat and bun. The sandwich verges on the fork-friendly, and you won't need to eat for at least two hours afterward.
