Brennan and Carr

USA

The double-dipped roast beef sandwich ($5.25) was so unappealing to look at that I neglected to take a photo of the thing. The soggy mess could never be picked up, so patrons throughout the restaurant were using knife and fork.


The restaurant is a fun place to be, the waiters wear white lab coats that make them look like either a scientist or the chef. After placing your order they go grab the mic and announce it to the guys doing the cooking. The wood-paneled walls, tables full of senior citizens, and the general atmosphere of a place open since 1938 and probably not changed much is always good times.

As for the sandwich, the roast beef slices are very thin and arrive still pink, barely cooked. Obviously the sandwich is juicy when it has been double-dipped, but you can tell the meat is tender and prime cut. Each bite is better than the rest.

Brennan and Carr is one of those places that not only take you to another time period, you just feel you are in another world altogether.
