Celebrity chef Mario Batali appeared on "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new book featuring beloved American recipes, and Buffalo's signature beef on weck surprisingly takes center stage.
Fallon, who hails from Saugerties, NY, asked for an example of something delicious from upstate New York, and as Batali began to describe the roast beef on kummelweck - vivaciously calling it "beef on a weck" - the host curiously pulled out the sandwich Batali described. What a coincidence!
Watch the clip, via the website for "The Tonight Show," here:
According to Buffalo's Famous Facebook page, the relatively new Buffalo-themed restaurant in Ditmas Park supplied the sandwich for the show.
