Brisket Variations

Brisket is one of our more popular cuts at Lobel’s of New York. Customers are always asking for it, and we’ve learned over the years that people are passionate about their brisket! That said, brisket is not the same thing to all people. To some, it’s the quintessential cut for good ol’ low-and-slow barbeque. To others, it’s a slow-cooked comfort food. And to others, it’s the centerpiece to a traditional Passover feast.


The Straight and Narrow: Asparagus

Cultivated since ancient times, asparagus is a harbinger of spring virtually worldwide. Whether stir-fried in China, bathed in Hollandaise sauce in Germany or the Netherlands, or grilled over a wood fire on the California coast, asparagus is not only delicious, it is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber.

And if this doesn’t leave you weak in the knees and salivating or make you want to catch the next Iberia airliner to Spain, you surely have ice water in your veins.
