The fireplace in 45th Grill's cozy dining room offers a Dadaist simulacrum for the grill that fires each Angus beef burger and steak behind the scenes.

In the early morning, when many sandwich joints are still shuttered tight, Big Town Hero's bakers are hard at work. Hand-crafting each loaf of bread in-store every morning, they lay the foundation for the day's delicious sandwiches. Out of the oven and sliced in two, the bready canvasses support towering piles of delicious deli meat and fresh veggies, sourced locally whenever possible.
