Smoked Brisket Sandwich at Fatty 'Cue, Dish No. 54
The smoked brisket sandwich is a very lush production.
The brunch menu at Fatty 'Cue is, in many ways, more approachable than the restaurant's regular menu. There are strange sandwiches, plates of ribs, and a soup among the 10 offerings.
The smoked brisket sandwich, mounted on a toasted baguette, features cubes of fatty beef brisket slow-smoked on the premises, wads of cilantro, pickled purple onions, mayo (here rather grandly called "aioli," and smoked cheese -- which sounds like a bad idea, but turns out to be scrumptious.
