Sandwiches always need a good side dish. Here are the best sides I had while writing this round-up.
Crispy Brussels Sprouts from Village Social in Mount Kisco
MP Taverna, Irvington
Smash fries are something you will crave over and over again. The process is intensive: Potatoes are soaked for 24 hours to remove starch and increase crispiness when cooked. Afterward, they’re fully cooked in the oven, then flash-fried, smashed, and fried again. The result? Flattened, well-salted, super-addictive potato wedges with a crunchy exterior and plenty of potato inside.
Dinosaur BBQ, Stamford
Decent slaw isn’t easy to find, but Dinosaur BBQ nails the mayo-to-vinegar ratio perfectly. It’s also made every 20 minutes—to ensure optimum freshness.
Crispy Brussels Sprouts
Village Social, Mount Kisco
Sprouts are everywhere these days, but Village Social is doing them differently and better than most. These slightly charred baby cabbages are drizzled with a sweet/spicy chili glaze, creamy garlic aioli, and sesame seeds. I dare you to stop at just one order.
