Cheap Eats 2012

This mottled-brick sandwich shop—hidden behind consulting chef Dan O’Brien’s Seasonal Pantry market—is a nice change of pace from the usual sub chains and cookie-cutter delis that dominate the workday lunch scene. The kitchen, outfitted with a grill, takes inspiration from around the globe, crafting hefty sandwiches inspired by cities from Madrid to Tehran.

We go for the Kingston, fiery jerk chicken cooled with pineapple salsa and garlic mayo, and the Havana, which boasts excellent roast pork. There’s only a handful of seats at a communal table, so if you’re not heading back to the office just yet, grab a patch of grass in nearby Logan Circle.

Also good:Istanbul sandwich with a ground lamb-and-beef skewer and tzatziki; Saigon, a bánh mì with chicken-liver mousse and pork terrine; hummus.
