Anyone who says a vegetarian sandwich is a boring, uninspired choice, hasn't had the sabroso at Spuntino. This seemingly simple combination of roasted sweet potatoes, Haystack Mountain goat cheese, caramelized onions, and organic sprouts belies an exquisite, chef-driven flavor combination. (And, really, this shouldn't come as a surprise since John Broening and Yasmin Lozada-Hissom of Duo and Olivéa are Spuntino's masterminds.)
The sweet potatoes are soft and earthy, the cheese is creamy and slightly musky, the onions jammy, and the sprouts (just a few, thank you very much) give bright snap to each bite. Stack all that on salty, herby foccacia and you've got a memorable and bold dish.
Bonus: Bookend your meal with the farm egg salad—organic spring greens, warm pancetta vinaigrette, and a poached farm egg—and a refreshing orange-fennel popsicle.
