Chef Says: "Our porchetta is brined porkbelly and loin from Bensmiller's farm from Iowa with traditionally Tuscan flavors of garlic, rosemary, and fennel. We slow roasted it in our rotisserie ovens to achieve a crispy exterior skin, and it's hand carved in order to ensure that the meat stays moist. This attention to detail is what makes it so great." —Alex Pilas, Executive Chef
Why We Love It: Pork, salt, pepper, and olive oil—that's apparently all it takes to win us over. Don't be fooled; this deceptively simple sandwich actually has several types of pork stashed inside. There's a pork skin with a bacon-like crunch, wildly tender bites of pork loin, and wonderfully fatty bits of pork belly. You can distinctly taste every aspect; each is different, all are sublime. The downside? It's only available on Thursdays.
