Prestigious Bon Appetit magazine named this Irish Channel hideaway best new restaurant in the country in 2017. In the country, people. For a sandwich shop. With counter service. Go…taste…understand. The goodness stems from comfort, creativity, a dollop of hilarity, a side of wackiness, and talent. Thick-cut, fried custom-made bologna, kettle chips, and gooey American cheese are stuffed between fat white bread slabs. Even slow-stewed, heat-spiked collard greens make their way into a sandwich oozing with cheese and Russian dressing. Deviled eggs are topped with chicken-skin chicarrones and housemade hot sauce. Then, for those who have (or make) room, homemade vanilla soft serve comes with rainbow sprinkles (okay) or tahini and date molasses (whoa). I mean, you gotta laugh. And you gotta eat. Bonus: drinks are equally creative and carefully wrought. Double-bonus: adorbs vintage salt & pepper shakers.
