City Pages' Description

Three words: house-cured pastrami. This tasty, salty meat is one of the stars of the menu at Be'wiched, and it's about time it got here. The Twin Cities have never exactly excelled at the deli thing: Until recently, our best delis were the ones flying ingredients in from New York. Here to change this sad state of affairs are Be'wiched owners Matthew Bickford and Michael Ryan, two former fine-dining chefs (at La Belle Vie and D'Amico Cucina, respectively, among others) who are funneling their expertise and creativity into the humble sandwich-shop concept, with delicious results. That pastrami, served on rye of course, with coarse-grain mustard and tangy pickled cabbage, is a winner of a sandwich, as is the roast beef with Havarti, a sweet onion chutney, and spicy horseradish. The restaurant has an open kitchen and orange walls that are bright and cheery, if a bit bare. Some well-selected art certainly wouldn't hurt, but there is artfulness to be found on the plates: If you choose to eat in, you might see a food presentation with better design than the new Guthrie. But remember, Be'wiched is far more than just a deli: there's wine and beer available, plus a stellar Sunday brunch. Try the French toast made from house-baked brioche--it's sweet and spongy as bread pudding--or the delicate biscuits and gravy that is among one of the best executions of the dish in town.

    You can't go wrong with any sandwich here, especially the pulled pork!

  • Mpls.St.Paul Magazine on 11/30/10

    House-cured pastrami. Enough said.

  • City Pages on 09/13/13

    Amazingly peppery pastrami for the classic New York-style rye sandwich is house-cured; the turkey that's paired with bacon, goat cheese, and medjool dates is smoked on the premises. Try one, try all!

  • Zachariah S. on 11/03/10

    Don't listen to other tips saying that "only one sandwich" is amazing... They are ALL life-chantingly delicious.

  • Jake S. on 08/26/10

    Tuna confin is amazing as are the cupcakes!
