Does the city really need another upscale Asian sandwich spot? No, but as long as the food is tasty, it's fine with us. A serviceable lobster roll gets a slick of the delicious, MSG-spiked Kewpie Mayo, along with tarragon and a sprinkle of crisp fried shallots on top. The Vietnamese barbecue beef sandwich is better, boasting a pleasantly squishy but resilient bun filled with serious hunks of short rib--coarse-grained and tender--pickled carrot, and basil mayo. To drink, there are wine juice boxes and cans of Sofia sparkling wine.
