The lettuce looks odd to me … but based on your rave, I will certainly try one when I can.
BillyBoy, that sandwich looks wonderful. When I read your description of the ingredients, I thought to myself, "This is not any amateur, slap-jack creation". Then I read further done-thread that it is a Coliccio restaurant.
BTW, a poached egg on a frisee salad with vinaigrette is almost a cliche at a French bistro. It is easy to see where that combination came from.
I think it’s a light vinaigrette. I make one at home with olive oil, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt pepper and a touch of honey to balance out the tartness of the other ingredients. I know the green are VERY LIGHTLY dressed. Just a hint of the dressing on them, but it has a presence.
Billyboy, what would you think they are using to dress the greens, a vinagerette? of which type, was it tangy or sweet? Thinking of trying this at my cafe. YUM!
aww snap..thats a good lookin sammich!!!
Now that’s a breakfast sandwich!!!
Reminds me of the Egg Bacon and Cheese I used to cook up at the Flea Market!
Two eggs scrambled and fried
Six slices of bacon
Two 1/8" slices of yellow American cheese
Hard roll toasted on the griddle with a little bacon fat and butter underneath
i’ve only have had their lunch sandwiches, which are all absolutely fabulous. espec. the roasted pork.
Thanks BillyBoy… I agree, this *is* a perfect morning meal. My only concern is that it would have to be done at home, as I do not know of a local breakfast place that could do this without error. In my opinion, the soft yolks are needed here. I would also add a mere smear of dejon mustard to the bottom side of this sandwich…. [:p]
You would not eat it on a train, you would not eat it on a plane…
Roasted chile peppers?
IMHO, Nothing green should go on a breakfast sandwich.

While I love all the ingredients separately, I cannot fathom them together.Guess I would have to try it…..
‘wichcraft is part of the Craft family (Craft, Craftsteak, Craftbar), created by master chef Tom Colicchio. Yes, he’s the judge on "Top Chef", but don’t hold that against him. This man knows how to put ingredients together. Those breakfast sandwiches are so good they are beyond belief. The bread is astoundingly good. They’re a a little more expensive than an average NYC deli, but the prices are right on par with any midtown semi-upscale place, and you get bang for your buck in freshness and quality.
