'wichcraft, SF report w/ menu typed up!

I went to 'wichcraft Tues 10/17 to try it out. It wasn't busy at all at 11am which was nice for me.

Noticed the drinks that you can help yourself to on the left of the cashiers. I got Fizzy Lizzy Fuji Apple soda 12 oz for $2.25, they had other drinks and bottled water including Vignette wine soda.

I couldn't decide on the sandwich I wanted, but finally picked roasted turkey which has avocado, bacon, onion relish & aioli on ciabatta roll $9.50. It's a small sandwich, turkey meat was dry, didn't taste any onion relish or aioli, avocado wasn't quite ripe. bacon was ok.

I also got one of the soups of the day: lentil w/ parmesan cheese. I liked it, wish it was a bit warmer. The other soup was tomato w/ parmesan cheese.

They take credit card and you'll need it, it's so expensive. They give you a flat plastic number and somebody brings it to you.

My total with tax was $17.07!! Very full now though.

I'll go back to try more *(see below). Recommended.

  1. That doesn't sound like much of a sandwich for $9.50!

    1. that's right. I'm a big eater, so I really needed the soup to moisten the sandwich and to fill me up. I'd still go back to try the grilled fontina-black trumpet mushrooms & truffle fondue on pullman white bread $9!!

        I tried the same sandwich yesterday- same thing dry meat and only the bottom of the bread was heated- so I had to eat it open faced and ask for more aioli to moisten it- I was expecting better hopefully it will improve

        tried the sardine sandwich as well- not bad but everything was very acidic and not so well balanced

        the potato soup was good though

        1. re: hhc

          I didn't mean it sounded small, I meant for $9.50 I'd expect first-rate ingredients, and to be able to taste all of them.

          1. re: hhc

            I had the fotina with black trumpet mushrooms at the NYC branch. It's a delicious sandwich. Excellent flavors and textures. It is on the small side though.

          2. where is harold's sandwich that was supposed to be on the menu here?

              I think it's this one (modified from the version he made on the show):

              mortadela-mushrooms, pickled grapes & black olive mayo on sourdough $7.50

              1. re: chowaddict

                That's what I looked for to when I popped in a week ago to see the place (but not eat). Harold's sandwich should be indicated on the menu. (After all some random interns who created a few sandwiches are noted on the menu.)

              2. Thanks for taking the time to put up the whole menu online....I really appreciate your making this effort! I will ofcourse give it a try...I hope someone clues them into our reports on Chowhound so that their 'shakedown' will end on a positive note...they only have one month to 'get it right' at least in my book!
