Smoke in Oak Cliff praised for having one of country’s best sammies
It's brisket, of course.
OAK CLIFF Food & Wine magazine recently posted online their list of the best artisanal sandwiches in the whole US of A, and guess what? A local made the list: the coffee-cured chopped beef brisket sandwich at Smoke, the restaurant at the Belmont Hotel in Oak Cliff.
(Sadly, we have no picture of the sandwich, which indeed looks like brisket-y goodness. But you can see it here.)
That’s not the only thing that’s tasty at Smoke, by a long shot. Restaurant critic Leslie Brenner gave chef Tim Byres’ restaurant a four-star review last year, calling it “Texas cooking at its best.” She also raved about the churros there earlier this year.
The coffee-rubbed beef brisket the second local sandwich to get a little national love recently: In this month’s issue of Food Network magazine, Patina Green in McKinney was declared to have the best sammie in the state: ham and cheese with smoked cheddar and jalapeno-peach jelly on jalapeno-cheddar bread.
