Salon has a full fledged article by Francis Lam about Cutty's roast beef sandwich with crispy shallots in Salon. With recipe.

The sandwich is very good.

    I haven't had the sandwich. But can it really escape "horrible dry overwhelming bread why the shit did they use brioche" syndrome?

      Given that the roll in this sandwich is neither dry nor overwhelming...signs point to yes!

        They use a really good roll.

        I only wish he varied things more.

        I'm sort of naggingly against brioche rolls on burgers, but I love Cutty's sandwiches, said so in my Phoenix review a couple of months back. Here's the Salon article: http://www.salon.com/food/francis_lam...

          It's weird how something as simple as a sandwich can be so personal: you have to like the bread, the spread, the filling and the balance among them. Then there's the price point. Spouse and I share a Russo's large italian, extra hot peppers, and there's leftovers for the dog, for 6.99. Cutty's italian, at about 7.95, left us both hungry with nothing for the dog. The ciabetta was good, the cold cuts and cheese excellent, the olive salad a muffeletta knock-off and a little dull, and the home made chips were good but kind of more "cute idea" than good. With Seven Subs and Michaels in the neighborhood, we'll probably come back and try something else but, while we liked the sandwich, it will have to work harder to get our ultimate vote.

            Definitely not a super value sort of place, but that roast beef sandwich is one of the finest sandwiches around.

              But they make up for it on their drinks. $.80 for a fresh lime juice isn't bad in my book. The first time that I ate there, I definitely left feeling that I could have eaten more, but after 5 minutes after leaving, I didn't notice it. I would definitely go there more often if they put their Sat.special pork sandwich on as a regular offering.
