You no longer have to hit the city’s center to scratch your Ham& or Reuben-ish itch. Beloved Downtown sandwich shop the Goodwich has officially reached the suburbs, having recently launched its second location on Buffalo Drive just south of the 215.
The new spot, far more spacious than the snug Soho Lofts version, boasts a more extensive food menu, featuring starters like bacon jerky, a smoked whitefish dip and a pâté plate; sides like tater tots and street corn mac and cheese; and dinnertime daily plates with rotating beef, fish and vegetarian entrees. The current sandwich list includes some of the Downtown mainstays (the falafel, R.U. Chicken and outrageous egg salad dotted with chorizo and potato chip crumbles), along with such new additions as the J Dipper steak sandwich (with an absolutely addictive truffle fondue spread) and the Jazz Club Italian sub.
The Goodwich’s liquor license—which chef Josh Clark says will allow it to serve cocktails in addition to beer and wine—is in the works, so take the opportunity to delve into a soda list that includes Bundaberg Blood Orange Soda, Dry Soda Lavender and Mexican Squirt. Also coming soon: a fenced-in side-patio area that could turn into your new favorite outdoor eating space when the calendar turns to fall.
