Murray’s Salami Adds Porktastic Sandwich Created by Midtown Luncher
And we have a winner! A few weeks ago Murray’s Salami introduced a new line of pre packaged, individual sized servings of sandwich meats inspired by our quest to create a great sandwich during lunchtime using ingredients from the Grand Central Terminal Market. They also agreed to a contest where one of you would get to design the ultimate Midtown Lunch sandwich pack, which would then get added to the menu (with the prize being a giant charcuterie platter worth $150.) Well, you guys responded with a ton of great options (with the blog Blondie and Brownie going so far as holding a taste test to come up with their entries.) Unfortunately, there can be only one winner.
Simpsons reference. Check. Its exclusive focus on pork products. Double check. I can’t think of a better sandwich to attach the Midtown Lunch name to. We did, however, make one change. Justin’s suggestion called for Prosciutto di Parma, Niman Ranch ham, Porchetta Primata, and provolone… but provolone doesn’t come from a pig (that would be a truly magical pig.) So, we replaced the cheese with Fra’Mani’s Salame Rossa. What can I say? As much I love cheese, I love pork even more- and if you’re going to do it… you might as well go all the way, right?
So congrats to Justin! And for all you pork lovers out there, the “Magical Animal” is available beginning today and costs $8.99. Thanks to everyone for entering!
