Mekelburg’s is in the back of a small specialty foods store on a residential street in Clinton Hill, and it makes some of the best sandwiches in the city. The porchetta and the duck banh mi are both great, and definitely get a loaded baked potato with toppings like bacon and raclette or cod and caviar. You can sit at the bar and try and try different rare beers, or hang at a picnic table on the outdoor back patio with a group.
