We're at t-minus two days until our Sandwich Festival (!!). Tickets are sold-out and unfortunately there won't be any available at the door. But for those who will be joining us on Governors Island this Saturday for an afternoon of sandwich-inhaling, beer-swilling, and mingling with great folks, you have this menu to look forward to. It's, in a word, serious. Cue happy tummy grumbles. More

The Serious Eats Team 4 comments

It's time, sandwich-loving boys and girls, to reveal the winner of our haiku contest we presented to you a couple weeks back. The mission was to see which poet out there could craft the best sandwich-themed haiku in honor of the SE All-Star Sandwich Festival this Saturday. Not only will the winner get to walk taller as a published poet (well, published on our site at least), but our SE overlord himself Ed Levine will hold a live reading of the winning haiku for all festival-goers to hear! Without further ado, the winner. More

Serious Eats Sandwich Festival Profile: How We're Making Our Event Green

The Serious Eats Team 7 comments

The green features you already know about at the SE Sandwich Festival: the cilantro on the banh mi, the falafel fritters from Taim, and Governors Island's grassy hills of course. But we're also very concerned with the sustainability of the sandwich festival. Let's face it, garbage piles up at events and every time we go to one and see the overflowing trash bins, we're left wondering, how can an event be more green? For starters, we're using special, never-before-tossed SE frisbees in lieu of more traditional paper or plastic plates. More

Serious Eats Sandwich Festival Profile: Pork Belly and Zucchini-Ricotta Sandwiches from 'wichcraft

The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

Tom Colicchio's sandwich mini-chain 'wichcraft—with locations in New York, San Francisco and Las Vegas—is a reliable go-to for weekday lunches. You can add them to the awesome sandwich roster at our All-Star Sandwich Festival (only t-minus two weeks!) on Governors Island. They'll be serving two 'wiches, including this grilled pork belly with smoked cole slaw and dijon mustard on fresh-baked bread. And all the vegetarians joining us (well, the carnivores too of course) can look forward to another meatless option: zucchini and ricotta with tomato and olive oil. More

No picnic is complete without dessert, so after you've scarfed down sandwiches at the Serious Eats All-Star Sandwich Festival, stick around for a palate-cleansing popsicle from People's Pops.

Serious Eats Sandwich Festival Profile: Bánh Mì Zòn

The Serious Eats Team 1 comment

When we were thinking about bánh mì sandwiches for the festival line-up, one immediately came to mind: the winner of our best bánh mì in Manhattan. Bánh Mì Zòn's classic bánh mì is about as good as they get. The baguette is fresh with a light, tender crumb and a well-blistered surface that maximizes crackliness. Their pâté is the star of the stuffing, luxuriously rich and smooth. Hungry yet? Obvious next question, have you bought your tickets yet? More
