Mile End Sandwich

Menu at Mile End Sandwich

 

 

“Fat golden raisins cling to scarlet slices of what proves to be yieldingly tender pickled veal tongue, between rough-hewn wedges of inky-black pumpernickel ($12). It is the kind of sandwich that sparks flirtations with strangers.

 

Chicken salad ($10), on the other hand — studded with gribenes (chicken-skin cracklings), gently kissed with mayo, crunchy with barely brined cucumber, flaring with sunbursts of sweet pickled peppers, all on challah gilded with schmaltz — is something you want to keep to yourself.”
