After a successful three years of running one of the coolest super clubs in the city, Brooklyn Edible Social Club, co-founders Andres and Melissa are taking things to the next level– opening a restaurant, the Brooklyn Sandwich Society. It’s farm-to-table, with a focus on supporting and promoting regional agriculture. The menu includes both small plates and sandwiches (of course), like the Cumberland, with honey-glazed Berkshire pork belly, sweet pickled carrot, shiso, kimchi aoli on Pain au Lait, and the Clinton with marinated eggplant, purple mizuna, ricotta, and sauce verte on ciabatta. A cute touch– the sandwiches are named after Brooklyn streets (Waverly, Myrtle, Grand….)
So the sad news– the supper club will not go on, but Andres and Melissa hope that with the restaurant they’ll be able to each even more people than before and infuse more money into the local food economy. Right now they’re serving dinner, but in the next couple of weeks they’ll add brunch (yay!), and soon after, they’ll open for lunch.
