2011 Best Sandwich


It may be heretical to say this in Brookline, but here goes: Go ye on the Sabbath to Cutty’s and get yourself some pork. The Saturday special pork sandwiches, to be specific. Once a week, the slow-roasted pig comes in fresh to this Brookline Village café and is sliced thin for inclusion in such delicacies as the pork-and-pickled-fennel sandwich with roasted garlic on a crusty sesame-seed bun. With apologies to our rabbi, it’s a borderline religious experience. Oh, and the rest of Cutty’s (more-kosher) sandwiches, which are served all week? They’re not so bad either.
