Until May, the only way to get a Goodwich sandwich was to order from the tiny shack and eat it in your car or go into Dino's or wolf it down standing up. The bricks and mortar Goodwich opened in May (at 900 South Las Vegas Blvd, but facing Hoover St.). I'm delighted to say that even with the expanded menu (including many salads and more sides), the quality is as good as ever. There are tables outside and air conditioning and ample tables inside, as well.
Three of us sampled many offerings, and some of our favorites included the Sea Smoke sandwich (smoked fish, remoulade, onion jam, tomato, and greens), the Street Corn (corn, zucchini, cilantro, cotija, lime, corn nuts, and pasilla aioli), and the falafel (green pea falafel with chickpea puree, kale slaw and cucumber).
But maybe my very favorite is the shockingly simple tomato sandwich, which are perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes, with aioli and a hint of smoked sea salt. Biting into it reminded me of when I lived in Iowa and used to eat ripe tomatoes with one hand and a salt shaker in the other. Michael, one of the chefs, said that the tomatoes should be good for another few weeks. For tomato lovers, it is worth a trip to Goodwich just for this.
Goodwich opens at 7:00 a.m. Monday-Friday and 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and is open until 10 pm. 7 days.
