Sandwiching the best Summer Has to Offer
Chef Carmine Cozzolino was looking for a perfect place to work his culinary expertise when the Misquamicut Sandwich Company was for sale in fall of ‘21. He replaced the surfboards in the logo with bread–a nod to the fresh bread brought in from the Bronx to create the stacks of satisfying sandwiches–and made the kitchen his own. “We aim to please the ‘meatiest’ of carnivores to the ‘veggiest’ of vegetarians, and to everyone else who falls somewhere in between.”
This is his first summer at the helm and there are a lot of new items for guests to try. “The Reuben, I put my own spin on it,” he says with corned beef brisket, Swiss/gruyere cheese, housemade slaw and dijon mustard on marble rye, and adds “I will make it the old-fashioned way with Russian dressing if that’s what you want, but it started as a special and quickly made it to the main line-up. I make the brisket in-house–and we’ve got great vegetarian quinoa burgers! I make 98% of everything we offer here in house.” Cozzolino says proudly. The muffuletta is another popular pick-up, due to the housemade giardiniera. What will you get? No need to limit yourself, just go back multiple times during your stay and try them all.
