Mighty Quinn's East Village — highly recommended

It looks expensive when you go in, but once it's in front of you, you realize how much of a deal it is. For nine dollars (including tax) I got a good-sized serving of brisket (with a beautiful knob of burnt end on top), coleslaw (delicious and free), pickled onions, pickled celery, pickled red chilis (not as hot as they look), and lightly pickled cucumber.

First of all, it was the best brisket I've ever had anywhere. Second, the pickled vegetables pair perfectly with it (much better than honking pieces of sandwich bread, which I don't recommend), and cut through the richness and smokiness of the meat perfectly. Finally, I'd steer clear of the sauce on the tables; it's too gloopy and sweet, and the pickled veggies provide all the acid you need.

If you go, get the brisket, coleslaw, and make sure to ask for all four of the pickled items.
