Braised Brisket Sandwich at Jeffrey’s Grocery

Sometimes you just need a sandwich. And you might as well make it a good one. The braised brisket ($15) at Jeffrey’s Grocery is one of the best between-bread bites in town with its soft, tender meat sharpened by a red beet horseradish slaw. There’s a touch of muenster cheese to mellow things out, while toasted sourdough adds a lightly tart finish. A side of homemade potato chips seals the deal for the ultimate brown-bagger. Served during lunch or brunch only, the sandwich has a loyal following of regulars who rarely stray beyond their favorite order.

Though it is hard to get past that moist, tart, meaty pile, there are other bites worth exploring at Jeffrey’s, such as the raw bar, always brimming with king crab legs ($22), littleneck clams ($1.25 each), oysters ($M/P) and whelks ($10); a hearty shrimp po-boy with pickled celery, Buffalo hollandaise and blue cheese vinaigrette ($21); and the spot’s celebrated fried chicken breast ($25) with smoked chili honey.

The restaurant is part of the popular Little Wisco empire, which includes the recently-opened Montmartre in Chelsea; and Chez Sardine, Perla, Fedora and Joseph Leonard nearby in the West Village.
