The next of the monthly guest chefs at Mike Isabella‘s G sandwich shop: Del Campo‘s Victor Albisu. For January, he’s bringing his take on the classic Uruguayan chivito sandwich to the menu. The hefty sandwich consists of seared ribeye, mortadella ham, olives, hearts of palm, and a fried egg.
The price tag? $15. Which may seem steep, but consider this: The sandwich will cost you $20 at Del Campo (granted, you get fries there).
City Paper‘s sandwich critic gave Del Campo’s chivito a 4 out of 5 back in June. And the Post has already pitted Albisu’s G sandwich against the famous chivito across the street at Fast Gourmet and declared the G version victorious. Er, VICTORious.
