I made a legit rib sandwich, which, yes, took longer than waiting in the 5-minute McRib line at my local McDonalds. But I think investing a couple hours into a real Rib sandwich that has the fixin's of a McRib is the right way to go.
My date and I decided on Po, the small West Villager best known as one of the first eateries where Mario Batali got his start. We got there early. But by the time we were done, the line was out the door.
