Top-notch sandwich shop where the words "local," "seasonal," and "sustainable" have real meaning.

Our Review

There’s not a cheap shortcut to be found at this ambitious sandwich shop from former Pastoral cheeseman Daniel Sirko and partner Judd Murphy (also of Pastoral). Like every new venture these days it invokes the mantra of "local," "seasonal," and "sustainable." But here those words have real meaning, with ingredients on the menu of hot and cold sandwiches—plus a make-your-own option with house-roasted meats (turkey, ham, beef) served on Labriola and Red Hen breads. The prices reflect that commitment, with most sandwiches in the $6-$9 range, such as hand-carved beef with wonderfully funky blue cheese; the club, laden with juicy roasted turkey breast and thick-cut bacon; or grilled Gruyere with sweet caramelized onions. The weekend brunch menu features items such as croque madame, Belgian waffles, and polenta and eggs.
