When you spend years creating gourmet dishes that can be easily eaten in the dark, you learn a thing or two about what makes a good handheld meal. Enter Justin Sherrer, Doce Provisions’ chef and co-owner, who spent nearly a decade as executive chef of Cinebistros across the country. These days you’ll find him and girlfriend/co-owner Lisetty Llampalla at their Little Havana restaurant, slinging Latin-style sandwiches inspired by current culinary trends—locally sourced ingredients, Asian preparations, gastropub-influenced. The sandwich portion of the menu, dubbed “Pan y Tostada,” which is Spanish for bread and toasts, features some names you might recognize but made with ingredients you wouldn’t necessarily expect. There’s a Cubano stuffed with Italian soppressata in addition to traditional pork loin and a steak sandwich (pan con bistec) smothered in truffle cheese and shallot marmalade.
