LINCOLN PARK — Looking for a new lunch spot?
A sandwich-focused restaurant — aptly named Sandwiched — opened Monday in Lincoln Park in the forer hot dot joint Frank 'N' Dawgs, 1863 N. Clybourn Ave.
Almost all of the sandwich ingredients are locally sourced, which is a point of pride for co-owner Andi Roufos, who met her husband and now-business partner, Tony, while working at River North burger bar Blue Frog's Local 22.
Not only are the vegetables and meat from local farms, but the husband-and-wife team also smoke their own meat in-house (the brisket takes 14 hours) and bake their own biscuits.
"Sandwiches [are] always something we've had a passion for. It's our favorite meal. We like to get creative with it," Tony Roufos said.
Some of the sandwiches on the menu include braised pork loin with fried green tomato and broccoli slaw on a red onion roll ($10), house-smoked brisket with horseradish chevre on a house-made biscuit ($12) and house-smoked turkey breast with d'Affinois brie, Widmer's cheddar and granny smith apple on wheat bread ($10).
Sandwiched is now open 11 a.m.-8 p.m. every day.
