2021 Best Vegetarian "Steak and Cheese"
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: A steak and cheese. WHAT IT REALLY IS: Shaved and seasoned maitake and hon-shimeji mushrooms that are sautéed with peppers and onions, piled into a sub roll, and positively doused with gooey pimiento cheese. WHY TO GET IT: Besides the cheese sauce? Because it pairs perfectly with a boozy frappe made with scoops from the café’s sibling ice creamery, Gracie’s.
