They had us at “Kimmelweck.” When’s the last time you saw that caraway and salt-crusted roll available at a sandwich shop? And it’s only..like….the best damn sandwich bread in the whole world!
The fresh and fine roast beef it encased was every bit as good as the bread. As was the good sausage and hot cappicola ham on the Naked Royal we had.
We weren’t as keen on the other two bread offerings: Kaiser or Black Russian — neither has much character and (ever so slight) staleness was an issue, but the meats and cheeses within these baked goods are the best thing to hit the downtown eating scene since Luv-It started freezing custard.
The sandwiches here aren’t cheap ($9 each), but they’re handmade with fresh ingredients, good meat, and a lot of love. And we also like the pickled vegetables and the giant (and we mean GIANT) pickles that come with your order, and the warm, slightly sweet and sour fingerling potatoes.
Best of all, the tiny joint is right across Las Vegas Boulevard from Luv-It–Custard….which immediately makes this place a lowbrow gourmet corner of the highest order.
