Williamsburg grocer and butcher shop Marlow & Daughters is now serving sandwiches from Caroline Fidanza, whose sandwiches at the now-closed Williamsburg shop Saltie gained a cult following.
Fidanza, who now oversees the kitchens at restaurateur Andrew Tarlow’s restaurants, created a “Saltie-esque” menu with the help of Marlow & Daughters general manager Michael Kale. That menu includes half a dozen options like one with roast beef, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, mayo, and herb salsa, as well as schnitzel with cabbage slaw.
Most of the meats are made in-house, and all sandwiches are served on focaccia from Tarlow’s She Wolf Bakery, which supplies bread to the rest of his restaurants including Roman’s, Diner, and Marlow & Son’s. See a photo of the menu above.
The sandwiches are named after powerful women in the ancient world like Nefertiti, an Egyptian queen, and Theodora, an empress of the Eastern Roman Empire. They each cost $14.
The menu is inspired by Saltie, which closed after a eight-year run in December 2017. It was considered one of the best restaurants in the area for its baked goods and simple daytime fare, like the cherished Scuttlebutt sandwich with hard boiled egg, feta, olives, capers, and pickles, on freshly baked focaccia loaf.
Marlow & Daughters is located at 95 Broadway, near Berry Street, less than a mile away from where Saltie once stood.
