My Brisket House | Bay Ridge

Corned Beef
Corned Beef from David's Brisket House
Updated (2/4/16: David's Brisket House is now My Brisket House)
An extension of the original David's Brisket House in Bed-Stuy (you'll definitely want to visit that too), I've followed the story and was a fan soon after they first opened in Bay Ridge. I have absolutely glowing remarks for this sandwich shop from the start.  While David's Brisket House specializes in brisket, the real winner here is the award-winning, absolute best corned beef and pastrami this side of Brooklyn.

I've been here several times, and never disappointed. As most can attest, I love meat, and this place is no exception. They have just about any combo you can think of as any Kosher-style deli would only they're not Jewish, they're very much Muslim as they also close shop in time for prayer (check your watch if you plan to go around those times).

The pastrami by itself is sublime, as is the corned beef. Together on rye or a roll, heavenly! I've done that and had a side of small fries too. (Yes, I'm a glutton, punish me!) You get to choose different size sandwiches too. You're not forced into choosing the Gi-normous servings that others have you reluctantly deciding on because it's the New York touristy thing to do. Yes, I'm talking specifically about Katz and Carnegie!  The coup de grace is the lemonade. You have a choice of pink or regular, either way you can't go wrong. You get a full pint and then some!

The decor isn't much to waste time describing. It is deli-like, but you're really here for the food. Focus on that.  The staff are also thoughtful and well-versed in the art of meat sandwiches. If you decide that's not for you, there are also philly cheesesteaks you could sink your teeth into but that would constitute a crime in my books. Would you go to a steakhouse for a burger or fish? Exactly.  (GUFFAW)
A hearty 4.8/5.0

Challenge accepted:
The next time I return, I'll be participating in the "Three-the-Hard-Way" challenge...  9 minutes to eat a sandwich that includes brisket, corned beef, and pastrami.

If you're a foodie, watch the video on Serious Eats (attached above), and read up on their features on NY Times, and Village Voice. You'll want to hop in your car or the train and get there right after that. David's Brisket House on Urbanspoon

  1. "Leg OFF Bones PAD comes without bones, so it is faster to cook and easier to carve and is the perfect choice for relaxed cooking. The leg off bones meat deeply absorbs the flavours of your preferred seasonings and marinade, making it the superior choice for all weekday and weekend meals.Majestic Meats - Wholesale Meat Suppliers
