Say welcome back to an old friend here on the Philly Homegrown blog, Locavore Lunch. In the coming months, we’ll be featuring area eateries that serve lunch and source their ingredients locally. They’re all sure bets for delicious eats and foodie cred. Happy noshing!
Next time you find yourself feeling hunger pangs in the vicinity of 3rd and Race Streets, we recommend that you point yourself in the direction of the ever-so-cozy cheese bistro/sandwich shop, Wedge + Fig. If the name sounds familiar to you, it’s because just a couple of weeks ago, we found ourselves raving about their BYOB cheese happy hours. However, this little cafe is no one-trick pony and so we wanted to ensure we called out some of their other delights.
In addition to the cheese case, you’ll find that Wedge + Fig offers a full menu of sandwiches (which can be had cold or grilled), green salads (bursting with local veg) and grain/pasta salads. In addition to their regular menu, make sure to take a glance at the chalkboard on the right, it features an ever-rotating array of special panini. A recent feature was inspired by local food writer Drew Lazor ideal sandwich and was called (appropriately) The Jawn.
For the next two weeks, Wedge + Fig is offering a special deal for readers of this here Philly Homegrown Blog. Order any item off the lunch menu and they’ll give you $2 off a dessert of your choice. All you have to do is go in and say that we sent you.
