Untamed Sandwiches

icon-location-pin Midtown West

Low-and-slow meats are the stars of this midtown sandwich shop, outfitted with a communal table, wood counters and exposed brick walls. Breakfast combos include the Southern-style Ol' Grumpy (beef chili, soft-scrambled eggs, pimento cheese, cilantro) and the Mediterranean-esque Giulia, with sunny-side eggs, olive spread and basil.

This tiny, low-key sandwich shop creates simple yet remarkable sandwiches that rely on pedigreed produce. Most are served on house-baked sea-salt-speckled focaccia, a versatile vehicle that encases sardines, salsa verde;and house-pickled eggs in the Captain’s Daughter, a delicious riff on a pan bagnat.
