Belmondo

Polanco/Roma
American

With branches in two of the city's hottest neighborhoods and a menu that leans towards American home-style comfort food classics, this spot dishes up some of the best sandwiches in town, many of them influenced by New York delis. For breakfast there are options like an asparagus omelet and a bagel with lox, and for lunch, BLTs, Reubens, and Texas-style barbecue brisket. (The more adventurous might want to sample something called a "London Broil.") Salads are another highlight, and we like the couscous, beet, and kale combination, as well as the classic Cobb salad.
