Food Network's Jeff Mauro's cozy shop features slow-smoked meats available in sandwich form.  Offerings include Bao to the Pork (hickory-smoked pork shoulder, plum sauce, pickled daikon and carrot, and cucumber and jalapeno relish on toasted bao with a side of decent pun) and that famous BLT (extra crispy bacon, lettuce, Roma tomatoes, dry-rub mayo and balsamic caramelized onions on griddled brioche). The menu has one vegetarian sandwich: cold-smoked mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, basil, sun-dried tomato spread and balsamic glaze on toasted focaccia. There are also salads, concretes (vanilla-ice-cream-peanut-butter-banana-Pig-Candy) and sides like tot'tine, a play on poutine made with tater tots instead of french fries.
