Sandwich restaurants stacking up
August 15, 2012By Liz Biro
Sweet ’n’ Savory’s expansion into former Kefi digs leads north Wilmington restaurant news, all of it involving sandwiches.
The Pub at Sweet ’n’ Savory opened this month at 2012 Eastwood Road, next door to the original Sweet ’n’ Savory, 1611 Pavilion Place.
The full bar, two dining rooms and outdoor seating all host games, everything from a horseshoe pit by the front porch to skee-ball at the bar.
Fun stuff suits The Pub’s no-fuss menu of soups, salads, sliders, snacks (Frito pie, chili cheesesteak fries), grilled panani (bacon, banana, peanut butter as well as shaved prime rib and Havarti), quarter-pound hot dogs with myriad toppings (pulled pork, homemade chili, fried jalapenos) and comfort-food entrees (meatloaf, shrimp and grits, stuffed pork loin).
Prices range from $5 to $16. Kitchen hours are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, but a late menu is served until midnight.
Meantime, diners are getting made-to-order sandwiches at Mayfaire’s new Which Wich, a quick-service shop selling 50 kinds of “customizable” sandwiches as well as vegetarian and low-calorie options.
Guests use Sharpies to write their orders on sandwich bags marked with Which Wich’s menu. Diners may skip bread and have their sandwich fixings in a bowl.
Prices range from $5.25 to $11.75. Hours are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.
Local Which Wich franchisee Ben Brown, of Wilmington, previously worked as a waiter at Circa 1922 downtown and Brasserie du Soleil at Lumina Station. Which Wich is Brown’s first sole proprietorship.
On Market Street’s north end, stack loves are awaiting the scheduled Aug. 20 opening of corporate-owned Jason’s Deli, 5703 Market St., next door to Olive Garden.
