After the god-awful French dip I had in Newport, I was craving a good one. One with perfectly toasted, lightly buttered, soft bread stuffed with layers of paper-thin, freshly roasted beef, horseradish and a side of salty and robust flavored jus. Is that too much to ask?

I thought I had found the perfect French dip at the Mecca Cafe. Last time I ate there the French dip was perfect. This time… the meat was good, but the bread was plain, stale and un-toasted, and the dip was flavorless.

Anyone know where I can get a reliably good French Dip? Please?

Update: Glenna has kindly sent me the link to the Seattle French Dip thread she started on Chowhound. You can check it out here:

Thanks Glenna!
