Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, wraps, and more at Square Rootz Deli.
The menu at Square Rootz Deli teems with sandwiches, wraps, and other handheld mouth fillers made mostly from scratch with fresh, locally acquired ingredients. Bestow taste buds with a specialty sandwich, such as the Hoshi melt—meat loaf, swiss cheese, bacon, and spinach dip smothered between two slices of grilled sour dough bread ($8)—or win over discerning palates with the Southwestern wrap, which shrouds turkey, black-bean corn salsa, and chipotle mayonnaise in a tortilla shawl ($7). Vegetarians can nosh from the vegan menu, which includes the teriyaki tempeh wrap ($8), a tortilla housing asian slaw more crisp than a newborn Monopoly dollar.
The deli speckles its walls with local art, bright paintings, and a string of bulbs that illuminate the dining area. Saunter into the eatery for a variety of events, including occasional live music, art openings, and meat-loaf-stacking contests. The eco-conscious patrons at Square Rootz meticulously recycle nonfood waste and compost edible leftovers for donations to a local farm.
