One of the best things about reading food-oriented articles is that they can really stimulate the appetite. A few minutes ago, I read an appetizing current article about the incredible sandwiches being served at the new Make Sandwich restaurant in NYC.
Make Sandwich is located on Fourth Avenue at Union Square, and is becoming well-known for the unusual combinations it serves between two slices of bread.
The article mentions how Make Sandwich has hired chef Josh Sharkey to be culinary director, and oversee the sandwich shop’s food offerings. Previously, Mr. Sharkey was the chef/owner of the now-closed Bark Hot Dogs restaurant in Brooklyn.
In addition to providing a tantalizing menu of specialty sandwiches, the restaurant gives customers the option of creating their own tasty sandwiches. A wide variety of sandwich fillings are available, as are side dishes such as apple-date slaw, and lettuce and parm salad.
For a breakfast sandwich, Make Sandwich offers the combination of egg, maple-ginger sausage, cheddar cheese, pimento cheese, and chile ketchup on a brioche roll.
A grilled chicken and chorizo sausage sandwich at Make Sandwich features Oaxacan cheese, pickled onion and jalapeno, avocado, smoky mayo, and cilantro. An Italian meats sandwich is filled with salami, prosciutto, mortadella, provolone, jardiniere, red onion, tomato and Italian dressing.
Make Sandwich has a pork belly and pickle sandwich, and a real steak sandwich with salsa verde and olive oil. Their turkey sandwich comes with avocado, lettuce, tomato, pickled apple, smoked gouda cheese, and chile-celery mayo.
For vegetable lovers, this Union Square eatery offers a zucchini and falafel sandwich, as well as a spinach and artichoke option.
For dessert, Make Sandwich has triple chocolate cookies and vanilla gelato on the menu. These sweet treats can be ordered individually, or combined into an awesome ice cream sandwich.
