Good Food New Jersey in New York City! We stumbled on to L&W simply by chance while visiting the Big Apple as pouring rain changed our dining plans. Thanks Mother Nature as we had a fantastic lunch and decided to do an unplanned review.
Modern and pleasant decor with a very friendly staff who promptly seated and waited on us. We ordered two sandwiches off their lunch menu:
The Roast Beast: Short Rib, arugula, fried egg with a bacon onion jam. Super tender short rib that had great flavor. Balanced out with fresh crunchy arugula, the bacon onion jam a great added flavor that complimented all the ingredients. Fried egg? This addition just might chase me away from cheese forever!! Served on flavorful flat bread that had to be freshly made on location it was so good. BEAST, a perfect name for one of the best sandwiches I have ever had!
Surf & Turf Deluxe> Shrimp and pancetta burger, lettuce, tomato with a sriracha aioli. Superior flavor in every bite with the sriracha aioli adding a nice “bite” to the sandwich. Fresh tomato and lettuce as well as a terrific roll, surf and turf doesn’t get any better than this.
Great service, Superior Food and modest pricing for what is gourmet food. GFNJ in New York, I can’t wait for my next trip back and I will be there again!
