Chef/owner Mike Isabella recently launched an all-day menu at his sandwich shop/Italian restaurant, so dinner might be a hearty chicken-Parm sub and lunch an elegant plate of sunchoke ravioli. He also added a snug bar and pine booths to the industrial space, now more fit for lingering. As much as we love the sandwiches, we’re even more excited by the big plates: a rave-worthy fritto misto with crisp calamari and shrimp, pastas including peppery carbonara, and delicate potato gnocchi with spicy lamb puttanesca. Bucking the thin-crust pizza trend are pillowy foccaccia flatbreads, generously sauced with bright marinara and mozzarella. Inexpensive.
Also great: arancini with romesco; baby-goat sandwich; meatballs with garlic bread; Jersey Mac breakfast sandwich; Nutella cookies.
