High-quality sandwiches make Cane Rosso, a new rotisserie-centric place opened by Coi’s Daniel Patterson, a great bet for a Ferry Building lunch.

The beef brisket sandwich uses “tender, flavorful beef brisket with a tangy and sweet tomato conserva and dandelion greens for a nice bitter edge,” says Morton the Mousse.

The PLT one-ups a classic with pancetta, lettuce, and tomato on buttered brioche. There isn’t a lot of pancetta, notes Pei, but that’s kind of the point: “You eat a small piece of perfectly smoked meat, and it’s enough to flavor the whole sandwich.”

RichInMV tried Cane Rosso the first day it was open, and enjoyed a sandwich of tender, flavorful pork shoulder au jus with baby mustard greens.

Sandwiches are mostly $9, compared with $5 at Acme Bread nearby.

Also worth trying is the bacon-caramel popcorn. It’s a great balance of sweet, salty, and crunchy, says Morton the Mousse, with “just the right amount of bacon to make it work.”
