In Brooklyn they're calling it the best thing on sliced bread. Naturally, my eyebrows and my curiosity were immediately on the rise. On further examination, I think they're on to something with this sandwich. Ms. Sarah Zorn, a foodie blogger from Bay Ridge won the highly competitive sandwich contest at Robicelli's Gourmet Market this week. Congratulations Sarah! The sandwich is not only delicious, it's a fitting addition to Robicelli's fabulous menu. The Market has everything for everyone, from the most sophisticated gourmand to the average Bay Ridge guy looking for some grub, and Robicelli's is said to have changed the face of food in Bay Ridge. Their niche? Hormone and antibiotic-free meats and deli, a carefully edited selection of cheeses, hard to find herbs and spices, grains by the pound, insanely unique and yummy salads, wraps and soups, fresh delivered croissants from Pastis, delicious daily specials and organic baby/kid foods. What's not to like?

Ms. Zorn lives in the area and has an award winning foodie podcast site called “The Main Ingredient”. Her winning sandwich of the same name is already available on Robicelli's menu for $8.99. Along with her cash winnings of $100.00, Sarah will receive one free sandwich from the eatery each week. Bon appétit
