You guys need to check out Au Jus (1st ave and 91st). I grabbed the lunch special - sandwich, side and a drink for $7.95. What a great addition to the neighborhood! They specialize in slow roasted meats - beef, lamb, pork. The sandwiches are really flavorful. I had the porchetta. This is unlike anything I've encountered on the UES over the past ten years. It's something you'd typically find in the East Village.
It's just a tiny space with just a few counter seats along the front window. Looks like mostly take-out and catering. This is a pretty off the beaten path spot, so I hope they manage to create a buzz. I'd hate to see them fail.
