'Wichcraft, New York
This slick cafeteria is the brainchild of celebrity chef and Top Chef judge, Tom Colicchio. The sandwich-centric menu includes fresh renditions of familiar American fare with gourmet twists. Tangy onion relish complements 'wichcrafts' made-to-order roasted turkey sandwich, while the vegetarian goat cheese sandwich comes topped with avocado, celery, walnut pesto, and watercress. Other sandwich options include the chopped chickpeas, slow-roasted Berkshire pork, and braised beef brisket. Salads are also available, as is a breakfast menu. During warmer months, a rooftop deck is open.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
