Lunch Just Got a Lot More Exciting

By now, you must know about All Good Things, the exciting new market at 102 Franklin, directly across from Steven Alan. But you might not be aware that All Good Things also has a wealth of delicious opportunities for lunch (and beyond), and it even now has seating in the back.

Three of the vendors make sandwiches daily. Cavaniola’s Gourmet has a menu of five, including turkey with Asiago cheese, artichokes, and roasted pepper, and ham with brie and apples. And they’re big:

Dickson’s Farmstand Meats makes satisfying sandwiches, too—the ones listed on the menu below are the core group, with new varieties popping up. And as the weather turns chilly, Dickson’s will add hot sandwiches (such as pulled pork) and chili.

The All Good Things seafood counter comes up with a different sandwich and soup every day. Recent sandwiches have included lobster rolls, tuna confit, and swordfish confit, while mixed seafood bisque and clam-and-corn chowder have been among the soups. Yesterday, I asked chef Ryan Tate what would be today’s sandwich, and he said he had no idea. This is the very opposite of factory food.

Of course you can also cherry-pick a meal, perhaps starting with a cheese plate, stuffed grape leaves, or prosciutto from Cavaniola’s…

…and/or a spinach pie or onion roll from Orwasher’s…

…and/or fruit from All Good Things…

…and/or yogurt or granola from Blue Bottle.

Whatever you decide, one thing is for sure: You must leave room for dessert.

(As if that last photo weren’t enough, just off to the right are chocolate-dipped potato chips.)

Seriously, if you’re in a lunch rut, snap out of it! And the fun doesn’t end in the afternoon. All Good Things is serving a nightly menu of five or six small plates (plus oysters) along with beer, wine, and cocktails at the back bar till 11:30 p.m. or midnight, with lunch small plates expected to start soon. Blue Marble Ice Cream is open till 10 p.m., so don’t wait too late to head over.
