Spinoff of East 1st Street's Joe Doe, Joe Dough is one of the newfangled sandwich stalls that have been a boon to East Village eat-and-run dining. The modus operandi involves taking classic sandwiches and reconfiguring the hell out of them, often with partly facetious purposes. Thus, J.D.'s french dip substitutes caramelized tongue for overdone roast beef, and dresses it with a pungent horseradish slaw, and provides a nice gravy on the side that isn't canned. The so-called "Stoner's Delight" is a ramped-up grilled cheese, while the Conflicted Jew puts bacon on challah bread, perhaps for the first time. Though the sandwiches are expensive, they're voluminous, and you won't go away hungry. Warning: minimal, uncomfortable seating.
