Finally, the time is at hand for Sandwich Madness.
Step inside Marcona, your new Melrose shrine to beautiful things between bread, soft-opening this Saturday.
It’s a classy little drop-in place, with coffered ceilings, a gleaming deli counter and the occasional swirl of a matador’s cape. (A marcona is a Spanish almond, a common ingredient here. Hence the paintings of matadors. Sort of.)
You might also get distracted by rows of granola, olive oil and honey-walnut brittle. Go ahead, grab some to take home. We’re not in the business of nudging you away from honey-walnut brittle.
But really, you’re here for the sandwiches. They’ve got a BLT with thick bacon on a salty pretzel roll. A hanger steak concoction with blue cheese and apricot chutney. And if last night was a rough one, grab a couple $5 Bodegas with bacon, fried egg and cheese.
So yeah, you’ll come here when you need to return to the office bearing lunch, or when you’re headed home for a Netflix date. And in the latter case, you’ll probably want a pile of cookies and cherry cheesecake, too.
And something for your date.
