I've been eating at 'wichcraft in NYC for a few years now and I was so very delighted when I first picked up a copy of Jane and Michael's "Roadfood Sandwiches" and saw that they had included the fried egg breakfast sandwich from here. It is the best breakfast sandwich I have ever eaten in my life (and I've eaten quite a few)! I've been meaning to bring my camera and finally did yesterday. They weren't sure about me taking pictures inside at first, but they ended up being cool about it. Hope you enjoy the pics!
A shot of my sandwich: fried egg, bacon, gorgonzola cheese, and lightly dressed frisee lettuce on a toasted ciabatta roll.
The breakfast menu. These are a bit pricey and I wouldn't buy them regularly, but they are a nice treat.
The after breakfast sandwich menu. The grilled cheese and the triple decker PB & J are very tasty as well. One of the things I like is that they have some really great breads from local bakeries and they use them throughout the menu. Not your standard sandwich shop fare and when a few ingredients are used, quality is key. I especially like the Fresh Air Fund idea. Nice to see them giving back. I wish more businesses did it.
Outside the shop.
A mug of peanut butter hot chocolate. The peanut butter made it very rich and silky, but I think the chocolate flavor was somewhat weakened by it. I think they used a chocolate mix of some type instead of melted chocolate.
A side view of the sandwich.
An open shot of the sandwich. Some might think that the frisee is a bit excessive, but every ingredient in this sandwich makes sense and makes it presence known. Two fried eggs (with somewhat runny yolks, a good thing), sharp tangy gorgonzola cheese, crispy bacon, and crunchy frisee that has a light dressing on it (dressed just before added to the sandwich. The ciabatta is a perfect vehicle as it is soft and the filing doesn't squish out as it might with a firmer bread.
