All meat-loving Americans love a good steak-and-eggs breakfast, so of course Dunkin’ Donuts has a bagel sandwich — the Angus Steak & Egg — that tries to mine the combo’s immense popularity. Dishonor such a seminal dish, though, and somebody will come for your neck, as the chain has discovered now that it’s the defendant in a new lawsuit filed by a woman in Queens.
