I don't want to bury the lead. The tomato sandwich that I raved about last year is back. The sandwich couldn't be simpler: great heirloom tomatoes, with homemade aioli with smoked salt on an impeccable white pullman bread. The tomato in the sandwich I tried a few days ago was not *quite* at its peak of freshness, but was still one of the highlights of my trip to Las Vegas.
A tomato sandwich not your idea of a full meal? Then combine it with a salad. On the Spring menu, which will turn to the Summer menu in a couple of weeks, I'd suggest the El Choppo, which features whatever greens and vegetables look good, pepitas, cotija, and ripe, fresh berries (in this case, blueberries and strawberries) with a balsamic vinaigrette. If you want a protein, you can add it, although I prefer it vegetarian.
And the number of pies offered seems to be multiplying. A caramel-pear pie I tried was too sweet for my taste, but the triple- or quad-berry pies are more than worth the calories.
Perhaps the best news of all? Goodwich is expanding, and the guys have taken a lease on a spot at Buffalo and Warm Springs, which might be the best thing to happen to the Southwest since Desyree opened Gelatology on South Rainbow.
