Vegas Doubles Down for National Sandwich Month in August
National Sandwich Month
is underway and several independent Las Vegas chefs have put unique stamps on the art worthy of national attention (Pictured: Esther’s Porchetta Sandwich).

  • Esther’s Kitchen: The popular “Best of Las Vegas” Arts District seasonal Italian restaurant offers several classic and vegetarian housemade sandwiches including these highlights:
    • Mushroom Panini — This upgraded grilled cheese combines fontina and tartufo (black truffle) cheeses with a five mushroom mix, aioli, chives and lemon, grilled on housemade sourdough and finished with an extra crust of cheese on the outside.
    • Porchetta Sandwich — Juicy house made porchetta is roasted and shaved on a roll with pork cracklins, spicy rabe and pickled chilis.
  • EDO Tapas & Wine: Located in Las Vegas’ bustling Chinatown, EDO offers a modern take on Catalonian tapas, gin & tonics and Iberico de bellota (also “Best of Las Vegas”).
    • Bikini — Possibly the world’s skinniest, most delicious sandwich, this take on the Spanish classic combines sobrasada and mahon cheese for an impossible amount of flavor in a wafer-thin package. ($7)
  • Graffiti Bao: The new take on Southeast Asian street food by former TAO Group Corporate Chef Marc Marrone combines traditional forms with boundary-breaking tastes.
    • Royale with Cheese — While a bao may not be a sandwich per se, this hand held doughy dumpling filled with meat is about as close as it gets in some parts of the world. Chef Marc took it for a ride, filling it with ground beef and cheese for a tribute to the American burger via Paris (w/nod to favorite movie Pulp Fiction).
  • Served: Chef Matt Meyer’s Henderson outpost mixes classic Americana with French technique and Pacific rim flavors for a menu of dishes bursting with delicious twists.
    • Korean Cheesesteak — Spicy pork bulgogi is smothered in cheese sauce and topped with kimchi and pickled radish for a mind-blowing wrestling match in your mouth between Seoul and South Philly.
    • Served is also offering a Sandwich Month Special Offer throughout August: Buy one sandwich or burger on Brunch menu, get one 50% off-or-Any sandwich 50% off with purchase of other entree on Dinner menu (discount applies to lesser priced item). Cannot combine with other offers, mgmt. reserves rights.
