Dominican cook Pepe Sanchez labored for over a decade in a midtown Italian restaurant before setting up shop in the shadow of the Atlantic Avenue station in 1988. Since then, his Dominican diner has kept blue-collar commuters exceedingly well fed with tender broiled chicken, daily stews, stacks of morning pancakes, hefty sandwiches, and heaps of pinto beans and yellow rice. Construction workers sidle up to battered vinyl stools for huge omelets before the workday begins, Spanish-speaking grandmothers gossip over Goya juices at pink-plastic topped tables in the afternoon, and Sanchez’s friends, sister and son keep the orders speedy. Tucked modestly in the expansive menu is the undisputed king of the entrees; breaded steak, a nearly foot-long slab of fork-tender strip steak fried in a thick, crunchy egg and bread crumb coating. It’s not a traditionally Dominican dish; Sanchez modeled it after the chicken parmesan he spent years preparing in his former gig, making that breaded steak his own signature (and delicious) dish.
