entire brunch menu. Lawman and Little B are bone fide fans as well. The "Mimi's Sandwich" consisting roasted eggplant, roasted peppers, Bulgarian feta cheese, and labne (a thick yogurt-like cheese) is so good that Lawman has specially requested I make it at home on more than one occasion. When I heard that they had added some new sandwiches to their lunchtime menu I had to check it out...
I adore Mimi's lemon-tinged, tahini dressed roasted cauliflower salad so the Labne Sandwich (labne, cauliflower salad, cumin mushrooms and green tahini sauce) immediately caught my eye. The sandwich alone is $7 and it's only a couple of bucks more to trade up to a sandwich plus side salad. The cauliflower/labne combination work well together on their own, but the addition of the cumin stewed mushrooms and green tahini sauce take it to the next level. By the end of the meal one thing was clear, I'm going to have to find more excuses for eating lunch in Brooklyn.
