Mr. Beef on Orleans Restaurant Review

: The namesake Italian-beef sandwich is one of the best in the city; there's a spicy, tantalizing sweetness to the meat that is incomparable. And it’s not just regular folks who noticed: Jay Leno and Joe Mantegna are among its devotees. The ribbons of meat are loaded with a heavy hand into a soft-inside, crispy-outside roll, and the peppers (sweet, hot or both) are piled on top and served wet or dry. Get it as a combo because the grilled Italian sausage has good flavor as well, thanks to a hit of fennel. Mr. Beef also makes a first-rate cheeseburger and roasted red pepper sub, so don’t be afraid to deviate.
