To my surprise the prices were inexpensive, with the classic roast beef sandwich costing less than $6! We ordered soda, French fries and of course two sandwiches, mine regular (meat only dipped) and Alex "double-dipped." When it all arrived I was in heaven. The roll was soft and the meat moist. The sandwich is quite simple, but the beef broth takes it over the top! So much so I asked Alex to ask for broth on the side as I wanted to control how much of my sandwich I submerged into that delicious beefy flavor. Within minutes I was done and satisfied. Alex then asked his usual question: Would you come back? To which I replied, Yes, in a heartbeat!
I plan on visiting other gems featured on Man v. Food, but for now you should head out to Brooklyn for a mouthwatering sandwich at Brennan & Carr! Hope to see you there!

Today the three of us met up at Five Points Restaurant. While this restaurant has been featured in Time Out NY and New York magazine, what brought us in was an episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network. Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli raved about Five Points’ Wood Oven Pizzette. What's that? It’s thinly sliced Yukon gold potatoes, fontina cheese & truffle oil “pizza”. Mouth watering yet? Figured so, that's exactly why we went to check it out for ourselves!
Naturally we needed more dishes to accompany the pizzette, so we ordered the Char-Grilled Grass Fed Burger and the Beer Battered Fish Tacos. All the dishes looked remarkable. We eargerly asked the waiter to place the dishes in the middle so the three of us could feast!
It was unanimous, the pizzette was the favorite! But at the very least we were able to taste other menu items, split the bill which made it economical and lastly, got the opportunity to catch up on each other’s lives. Now that's what I call a great power lunch with girlfriends!
