Village Voice's Description
Started by alumni of Marlow & Sons, this modest shop with only a few seats offers some of the craziest sandwiches you've ever seen, many with nautical themes. Ship's Biscuit is a favorite-egg and scintillatingly fresh ricotta on a homemade foccacia. Other sandwiches involve sardines, hummus, curried cheddar, piccalilli, olives, aioli, and something called Branson pickle. In addition, the place offers innovative beverages, ice cream that can be had by the scoop, or incorporated into a memorable ice cream sandwiches. Then, each day, there's also a single salad and single soup. The hardest part is figuring out how to eat the sandwiches.
Tips from foursquare
The Underground Gourmet loves the Caesar-esque Romaine Dinghy, calling it “a BLT without the B or the T, but damn if it didn’t win us over.”
The vegetarian Clean Slate is as vibrant as it is hefty — it’s fearless, if a sandwich can be such a thing. The ice cream sandwiches are equally rich and delicious; order both and share with a friend.
Try the ocean-themed sandwiches, a sampling of which includes: The Captain’s Daughter, Little Chef & Ships Biscuit with soft scrambled egg & ricotta. Don't miss the pastries & homemade ice creams.
Captain's Daughter: first and foremost a sardine sandwich. It uses an entire tin of the little fish, burying them underneath a pile of scallions, pickled eggs, capers, and the aforementioned herb
Some of the best and most decadent sandwiches around – Definitely get the Scuttlebutt or the Romaine Dinghy – the salad sandwich, when it’s being available.
