You’ll not likely return to a regular deli after sampling a sandwich from Melt. Follow the three-step ordering process: Choose your 1) bread—roll ($5), flatbread ($7), or wedge ($8); 2) one of eight meats (which change daily) and one fish smoked or roasted daily in-house; 3) and one of more than a dozen combination toppings.
The meat selections go beyond your usual deli—aged beef top round, hickory-smoked Black Forest ham, coffee-rubbed beef brisket, rosemary-mustard pork loin, and pulled barbecue turkey. Toppings include “the mango” (mango salsa, jalapeño, red onions, and cilantro); “the French onion” (sautéed onions, Gruyère, and au jus); and
“the Italian” (broccoli rabe, provolone, and roasted tomatoes). A small breakfast menu, grilled pizzas, salads, and soups are also offered. Local delivery.
There may be many options for sandwiches in White Plains, but you’d do best getting yours at Melt. Where else can you get char-grilled, gooey-with-melted-cheese sandwiches stuffed with in-house smoked/roasted meats like hickory-smoked Black Forest ham, or original toppings like The BLT (applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo)? The ordering process may be puzzling to newbies at first, but it’s easy to learn: choose the bread (roll, flatbread, or hero); the meat (usually from about 10 or so daily smokes and roasts); and finally, one of a dozen combination toppings. Our favorite? Roast turkey on flatbread with cheddar and chipotle rémoulade. Look out, Boar’s Head!
