A tune for Tuesday.


We just discovered Chikita Violenta, an indie rock band from Mexico City, and we thought you might like them too. They are full of an irreverent, infectous energy that seems like it would be incredible live. Catch them playing the early show this Thursday at the Mercury Lounge.  And if you go, tell them hola for us!

Food Wins.


Top Chef just won the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Competition Program. They beat global travelers competing against time, geography, and one another (The Amazing Race), "celebrities" turned ballroom dancers sweating their way back to "fame" (Dancing with the Stars), small town kids trying to make it big/one of the biggest television phenomenons ever (American Idol), and the show that made "make it work" a tag line in the Midwest (Project Runway) proving that FOOD WINS. Food wins every time.

Menu Spotlight.


The sun has finally showed face again after days of hiding out, so maybe this is a delayed reaction to the chilly grey days that blanketed our week until now, but the Tuna Melt has been on our mind. It's our homemade tuna salad, served with tomatoes and melted swiss, open face on white bread -- the absolute pinnacle of comfort food! We discovered this awesome post, including this mouth watering photo of all of the cheesy tuna melt goodness, by Robyn of the food blog The Girl Who Ate Everything (a pretty awesome site if you as us). Thanks for stopping in!

This looks fun.




We know Brooklyn is still a scary concept for a lot of our patrons, but after having read about this home brewing tutorial in Williamsburg at the Brooklyn Kitchen, we are thinking that maybe crossing the river every now and again isn't so bad.  The class will cover all of the preliminary information that you will need to get your own little operation started. The cost is $125 but includes an $80 home brewing kit, bottles of home brew for sampling, and knowledge to last a lifetime. The details: Hosted by Dan Pizzillo at 6:30 on September 15th at 100 Frost Street, view complete details here.

Sunday's favorites.


When we heard that there was a lady named Sally living for a month off of only legit street truck food, our ears perked in interest. We are not talking talking stands or carts, just literal trucks, and in a city that seems to be crawling with them, we wonder how much of a challenge this will be? Considering that she has devoted all three daily meals to the project, and the trucks are by nature mobile, we would imagine it could turn out to be a considerable one, full of scavenging walks tracking down their locales, then line time, followed by lots of messy and hasty chowing. Don't get us wrong, the city is full of delectable truck-born treats, and we will definitely be tracking this challenge, but we can't help but feel quiet relief for our customers who are offered a seat with their sandwich purchase. If you are curious as we are, follow her challenge here.

Eat well,

Menu Spotlight.


We came across this post on Canwiches a.k.a "The Great Canadian Sandwich Blog" and we kind of can't get over their photograph of our Club Sandwich. Look at our little baby shine! The deal with our Club is that it comes with a heap of tasty vegginess on one side of the seven grain triple decker, while the other gets the big show, with a heavy hand of bacon and either ham & cheddar, roast beef & provolone, turkey & swiss, or avocado & provolone. By the time you finish with this guy, your belly will be smiling for hours. There is no room for regrets when there are sprouts AND bacon involved!

A tune for Tuesday.


The North Carolina phenomenon Lost in the Trees play next Monday at The Mercury Lounge and we couldn't resist sharing one of their songs with you as our Tune for Tuesday. Their sound is somehow melancholy and upbeat all at once, with full string arrangements and sweet lyrics that remind us a little bit of the Bowerbirds and Devotchka. We've heard that they are beyond amazing live and hope we can stop by! It's an early show (7:30) and we'll being slinging sandwiches until 10, so who knows...At least we can enjoy this performance in the mean time.

Batali cooking veg!


You know we like a world that is veggie friendly, that's why we offer meatless substitutions on almost all of our sandwiches and salads. We are excited by the Meatless Monday movement, a nationwide campaign where restaurants are pledging to serve at least two vegetarian main dish options every Monday, and, recently, even more excited by the announcement that Mario Batali is currently writing a vegetarian cook book which a recent interview suggests, may emphasize the role of farmers in home cooking. We can't wait! Get out of those Crocs and in to our kitchen, Batali!

Sunday's favorites.


Downtown Lunch, the 'southern' offshoot of Midtown Lunch, is one of our favorite sites for keeping up with all of the highs (ridiculously delicious flavors) and lows (for cheap!) of daytime dining in downtown Manhattan. Consider it a comprehensive guide to what they describe as "the adventure of urban lunching" replete with forums, links, listings, happy hour roundups and much, much more. They cover such an incredible variety of cuisine, all of which is on the pocket friendly side ($10 and under), and create seriously handy cheat sheets for those times when you finally decide to brave that new food cart but have no clue what to order, or find yourself in an obscure part of the island without your food compass.

They covered our reopening ("Downtown Links (The Sandwich Shop Returneth" Edition" - we hearted this headline!!!) and included one of our all time favorite portraits of the Rizzak, courtesy of Serious Eats:



Downtown & Midtown Lunch (with coverage on Philly and LA, too!) is such a fantastic resource and we look forward to continuing our reading; keep up the good work guys!

Menu Spotlight.


On a hot day like today, there is nothing like a mouthful of chilled, crisp lettuce. What could be better? Maybe covering the whole beautiful bed of greens with bite size pieces of cheddar and swiss, fresh cukes, rich avocado, tomatoes, carrots, chick peas, sprouts, and red onions all dancing under dollops of tangy balsamic dressing. And next level better? Scoops of savory tuna salad. Yum squared! Cool off with the Tiny's Tasty Happy Salad and choose from a whole mess of extras that will makes yours next level tasty.

We love this photo shot by a happy customer who had a salad party with their friends:

A Tune for Tuesday.


We were doing our usual trolling along the events calendar at one of our favorite neighborhood music venues, Cake Shop (one of the city's best places to see up and coming acts in a super low-key, intimate setting) and were so pleased to come across Luke Rathborne's music. He is in the same folky/unfinished singer songwriter category as musicians like Deer Tick, whose sound is far more heartfelt and soulful than their age should allow. The show is tonight, so you have the rare opportunity to hear our Tune for Tuesday live! Stop by beforehand so we can send you off to Cake Shop with sandwiches and well wishes.

Eat well,

Hester Street Fair Film!



If you haven't been by to see our neighbors at the Hester Street Fair yet, this short film will take you there and show you what you've been missing. This short is a sweet explosion of happy faces, talented vendors, summer sun, and scenes from the neighborhood, all set to one of our absolute favorite songs. Our friends and Hester Street vendors Sarivole and Macaron Parlour hold down our pastry racks at the restaurant all week long and so far people can't get enough of their organic baked goods (Sarivole) and unusual, savory sweet treats (Macaron Parlour). Once you try them, you'll see why, too. Come by for the real thing soon!
