Brennan and Carr

3432 Nostrand Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11229 | Brooklyn | 718-769-1254

Location Description:

Granddaddy of the roast beef joints is Brennan and Carr.

The somewhat dainty sandwiches are furnished with an undrained wad of roast beef steamed to grayness, served with a decent cup of bouillon for dipping.
