The Grifters Grinder

THE SANDWICH: The surprise sammies are finally back with The Grifters Grinder! THE INSPIRATION: The 1990 neo-noir classic, The Grifters, starring the delicious John Cusack, Anjelica Huston and Annette Bening. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies, and all three actors are spectacular. WHY? Because Noir is the Let’s Lunch* theme for June, in honor of Singapore Noir, a new book of […]

Lettuce Sandwiches!

Too Hot to Cook is the June theme for Let’s Lunch* — and it was perfect because the recent swampy humidity in NYC just killed any desire I had to bake bread or even turn on an oven burner. And ever since I researched lettuce sammies for my Bulgogi Lettuce Wraps with Kimchi Chips for […]

Sandwich Surprise: The Florida Edition! Blue Chip-Crusted Chicken Cutlets on Bacon Bits Bread

This week’s Sunshine State sammy: Why the road trip? While I was on a beach/golf vacation in Ft. Lauderdale last week, I just couldn’t pass up the chance to take a Florida’s Turnpike road trip to my friend Michelle and her family’s home near Orlando.

Happy Thursday! On offer today? Another veggie-friendly sammy, because I’m about to go on a tear of meatatarian recipes over the next few weeks. I came up with this spread because back in the days when I’d hit the salad bar at the Time Inc. cafeteria, the lemon juice-parm-edamame trifecta was my go-to. Here’s what […]
