Menin Hospitality introduces its latest addition to its Collection, Halves & Wholes (H&W). The elevated fast-casual sandwich shop is located at 1600 Alton Road across from Menin’s Bodega Taqueria y Tequila and soon-to open Ricky’s. Led by Menin Hospitality’s Corporate Culinary Director, Chef Bernie Matz, H&W offers classic sandwiches with a Miami twist. Inspired by classic sandwiches and shops across the country, Chef Matz showcases “12 Best” sandwiches along with a custom sandwich option for guests to let their wildest sandwich dreams come true. Each sandwich is an experience in and of itself, loaded with meats roasted in-house using a vertical broiler, artisanal cheeses and secret homemade sauces. Holding the sandwiches together is a selection of custom-baked breads shipped daily from the famous Delray Beach bakery, Old School. The 36 seat café is also serving up soups, salads, homemade chips, ice cream sandwiches and daily specials presented on a nearby blackboard. To accompany it all is a full list of local craft beers from MIA Brewing Co. and Funky Buddha Brewery, Flip Flop Wines’ Fizzy Sangria and soft drinks. Here is more information about Halves & Wholes :
According to Miami Culinary Tours :
“Menu highlights include the Cheese Steak shaved rib eye, jalapeno jack whiz, provolone, sofrito, crispy onions, sesame baguette; The Fritaloaf chorizo meatloaf, habanero jack, arugula, tomato, potato sticks, garlic parm aioli; and the Pan con Italian Beef short rib, charred onions, provolone, giardenara, potato sticks, cumin-garlic aioli, sesame baguette. In addition to the “12 Best” sandwiches, daily specials will enhance the menu and introduce new limited-run creations. H & W will also offer a small selection of soups, salads and homemade ice cream sandwiches and sundaes. H & W’s impressive beverage list will include local craft beers from MIA Brewing Co. and Funky Buddha Brewery, Flip Flop Wines’ Fizzy Sangria and soft drinks.”
According to Urban Daddy :
“Feels like one of those classic sandwich shops they’ve got up in the Northeast. You’ll see white tile, hammered-tin ceiling panels, butcher block walls and vintage deli cases. But you’re not here for the decor. You’re here for one of their “12 best” sandwiches loaded with meats roasted in a vertical broiler and secret homemade sauces. Like the CheeseSteak, filled with shaved ribeye, provolone, sofrito and jalapeño jack whiz (think Cheez Whiz’s Bal Harbour cousin). You can peruse the other 11 options right over here. Basically, it’s the kind of stuff you’ll want to pair with a beer or an ice cream sandwich at 4am. Which is good, because they’ll be open until 5am every day of the week. But they’ve also got a “picnic like a pro” option where you can mix and match a six-pack of beer and take it with a bunch of sandwiches to go.” written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.
According to Eater :
“On the menu are 12 different sandwiches created by chef Bernie Matz like a cheese steak made with shaved rib eye, jalapeno jack whiz, provolone, sofrito, and crispy onions; “The Fritaloaf” that is created with chorizo meatloaf, habanero jack, arugula, tomato, potato sticks and garlic parm aioli; and the “Pan con Italian Beef” that is filled with short rib, charred onions, provolone, giardenara, potato sticks, and cumin-garlic aioli. If you don’t like any of the 12 options, you can choose to create-your-own sandwich instead. Halves and Wholes will also serve up a small selection of soups, salads and homemade ice cream sandwiches and sundaes, with to-go and delivery available.” written by Olee Fowler.
