Neon, multicolored paintings and wall friezes like tattoo art spell casual at this sandwich joint. Chef-owner John Stewart’s sandwiches are spot-on. For the most part they’re nothing fancy—just well-executed sandwiches like BLB (bacon, lettuce, and beets). They are over the top thanks to house-made breads, like the chewy ciabattas, that hide their pillowy insides. House-made aioli made a huge difference as well. Amongst the best sandwiches in town.

Recommended Dishes:
