Vinaigrette Sub Shop will begin serving heaven on a hoagie roll in mid-June.
The highly anticipated concept from chef/restaurateur Danny Serfer and business partner Ryan Roman (of Blue Collar and Mignonette fame) will deliver an array of classic and Italian specialty subs with simple, yet superior ingredients, great bread and a quickness of service much needed for its Downtown Miami location.
Vinaigrette Sub Shop will offer Miami residents an approachable dining option for lunch or dinner and a cannot-be-beat catering option for Downtown and Brickell businesses. Sandwiches and salads will be made-to-order from a single all-day menu, with house specialties as well as the option for customers to dictate their own custom meal.
Unique to, and at the heart of the concept, is the namesake vinaigrette — a special blend of oil, vinegar, Calabrian chiles, Pecorino Romano cheese, herbs and spices that took Chef Daniel Serfer months to perfect. It is the must-have sandwich topper no matter what meats you choose.
“Mignonette came from our shared love of raw bar and the desire to open the type of restaurant we loved to eat at. Vinaigrette follows that same thread,” Roman said.
“I grew up eating subs at a little strip mall shop in Broward County and I loved it,” added Serfer. “With Vinaigrette, we want to have a place that people frequent and call their own. There is something special about a truly delicious sandwich.”
This will be made evident in the meticulously sourced menu of high quality Italian cold cuts like 18-month imported prosciutto, Calabrian salami, Scamorza and truffled pecorino.
The no nonsense menu is divided into four sections: Classics, Italian Specialties, Vegetarian/Vegan, and Salads. The bread options include a custom baked seeded sesame roll from La Parisienne Bakery.
For the Classics, protein options range from a special house-made Roast Beef to Turkey, Genoa Salami, Ham and Tuna Salad. Cheese choices include Swiss, Muenster, Cheddar, Provolone, and American.
Dress your sub with a selection of lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, banana peppers, hot pepper spread, salt, pepper, mayonnaise, spicy Calabrian chili mayonnaise, yellow mustard or Dijon mustard. Guests can choose to upgrade their sub with premium toppings such as fresh mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, piquillo peppers, truffled pecorino, or pimiento cheese.
Italian Specialties are served on La Parisienne Bakery’s eight-inch seeded sesame roll and include options like the Italian Combo with French Ham, Genoa Salami, Pepperoni, Provolone, Tomato, Lettuce, Spicy Calabrian Chile Mayonnaise, and their namesake vinaigrette or the Calabrian Salami and Scarmoza Cheese with pickled peppers, lettuce, mayo and vinaigrette.
Or opt for the Vinaigrette Combo with prosciutto, mortadella, Calabrian salami, soppressata, truffled pecorino, lettuce, mayo and vinaigrette. Other Specialties include 18-month Prosciutto, Mortadella, and French Ham.
Vegetarian and Vegans fret not — an entire menu selection is devoted to the meat-less, offering innovative, veggie-forward subs like the Veggie AF – Italian artichokes, piquillo peppers, pickled carrots and vinaigrette; Chickpea – Cumin, Paprika, Red Onion, Dijon Mustard and vinaigrette, and Fresh Mozzarella – heirloom tomatoes, basil, aged balsamic and EVOO.
Salads include Bibb Lettuce with spinach, provolone, radish and vinaigrette; Mixed Greens with mesclun, tomatoes, onions and vinaigrette; and a traditional Antipasto with iceberg lettuce, roasted peppers, tomatoes, Genoa Salami, provolone, olives and vinaigrette. Additional add-ons include Tuna Salad, Turkey, Roast Beef, Ham, Salami and Cheese.
