Running from Bed-Stuy to Crown Heights and beyond, Nostrand Avenue is one of the city's great food streets. One of its oldest establishments is DAVID'S BRISKET HOUSE, which has morphed over the decades from a corned-beef-and-pastrami deli into a full-service coffee shop while miraculously retaining its hot-meat roots. The brisket sandwich with gravy is a monument to the gloppy sandwich, and since the meat is now roasted rather than warmed in a water bath, the flavor is enhanced with a rim of caramelized flesh.
