Jerry's Sandwiches - new in Wicker Park

Spouse and I tried this new sandwich shop in Wicker Park tonight. We didn't realize that they were open until this past weekend when we wandered by then in for a glass of sangria.

Love this concept - there are over 100 sandwiches on the menu - every combination you can think of. Or if none of those tickles your fancy, you can make up your own combination. There were at least a dozen bread choices, over two dozen fillings (standards like turkey/ham/roast beef, to hummus, smoked salmon, fried eggplant, marinated skirt steak, you name it), over a dozen types of cheese, and too many condiment choices to count.

I went for the Iris D, which is: portabella mushrooms, giardenera, provolone, southwest mayo - and I chose to put it on a pretzel roll which was super fresh and chewy and it also held the sandwich together nicely. I thought the flavor of the giardenera was a perfect match with the mushrooms. Hubby went for a Louisianna fried shrimp sandwich. He enjoyed his as well.

The service was very friendly. The atmosphere feels organic, relaxing and warm. And they unwrapped a highchair for our 15-month old daughter. (There were several kids meal selections too.)

Definitely a casual place to check out. I think I've found my new favorite lunch spot in the neighborhood.
