Brennan & Carr

Went for roast beef sandwiches for the first time, with out of town relatives who had seen the place on "Man vs. Food." I was afraid that it would be packed with similar "food tourists" but it was the day after Christmas and it was pretty mellow. I'm still not quite sure about the food... it was exactly what I was expecting (cheap and quick.) The roast beef sandwiches are soaked in gravy and definitely not the kind of thing you typically get in the Northeast.

Overall, the combination of 30's decor, waiters in white uniforms with ties, and the total lack of pretension made me kind of like it. The only other time I have had a sandwich like that was in New Orleans, where the name Brennan is big in the food business. I wonder if there is any connection?
