The Space Between

Pirolo’s Panino’s sandwich shop pops up inside Macchialina


Now that summer's here, we're happy to have our city back, freed from the masses of tourists.

And now as a locals-only summer bonus, we get our own pop-up sandwich shop inside Macchialina Taverna Rustica.

The laid-back New York/Philly-inspired sandwich shop Pirolo’s Panino is open just for the summer, reminding us what a real sandwich is.

The Godfather is packed with sopressata, capicola, and pickled eggplant, and The Clipse...(Grinding) is stuffed with thick house-made roast beef and horseradish crème fraiche.

Pair one of these sandwiches with a proper side of classic waffle fries or extra crispy roasted burnt-end potatoes and grab a booth by the brick wall or weasel into one of the spots near the window.

There's going to be custom brew, too, specifically crafted to complement the sandwiches. (While the beer is still in the works, we hear Wynwood's own Gravity Brewing is behind the upcoming house ale.)

Don't be surprised when the menu changes either, since guest chefs from Eating House and Scarpetta will be offering their own special creations throughout the summer.

A summer we're not very grateful for.
