One of my favorite sandwich shops, East Hampton, is known for its sandwiches with a twist. The counter-service restaurant offers a variety of hot and cold sandwiches, many with in-house and seasonal ingredients. The restaurant, which is based in Dallas and has several locations across North Texas, has added a few seasonal items to its menu for the summer.
This menu is only available until the fall, so get to it!
Sidewalk Patty Melt:Â classic thin patties,Â SeagramsÂ white American cheese,Â Neuske’sÂ bacon, arugula, pickles, house 1000 isle sauce. If you’re all about a meaty sandwich, order this one! It takes your average Patty Melt to a whole new level, and isn’t greasy like the versions from fast-food chains. Tip: Pair the melt with the new seasonal fruit cup (pineapple and mint) – you will be surprised at the perfect balance of the two flavors!
Prosciutto De Parma:Â warm prosciutto, hillside goat cheese, shaved green apple, dressed arugula, candied fig jam, balsamic glaze. This sandwich is packed with seasonal tastes. The goat cheese pairs well with the sweetness of the apple, jam and balsamic. The meat/prosciutto, along with the rest of the ingredients, make for a satisfying sandwich.
Polo Club Pesto:Â herb-roasted chicken, sun-dried tomato spread (owners inspired by EatZiâ€™s sundried tomato spread â€“ so they made their own version), mozzarella, shaved purple onion, fresh pesto,Â italianÂ seasoning, basil aioli
Lobster Grilled Cheese:Â 1/4Â lbÂ of Atlantic lobster knuckles + claws, shavedÂ havartiÂ & American cheese, srirachaÂ dijionaise. While this item was on the original menu and went away, it’s back AND with double the amount of lobster! This sandwich gets two thumbs up for its creamy and tasty flavor (FYI, there’s a kick to it) and of course, all the lobster meat!
There’s a sandwich for everyone who comes to East Hampton! So if you’re in the mood for a veggie sandwich, you’re in luck. Choose from two items including:
And, theÂ LemonÂ Caprese:Â thick Roma tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil, arugula, balsamic glaze drizzle, house lemon mayo) — pictured above. Tip: Add a cup of the new seasonal potato salad.
