Saltie provides Williamsburg with something it greatly needs: a lunch-focused gourmet sandwich. It is a cleanly designed, take away-centric spot, with a few counter stools for eating in. The entire menu looks fabulous. In addition to sandwiches, they also serve pastries and ice cream.
Most everything here is served on sea salt topped Focaccia, with a good ratio of oil to crispness. The salt adds a strong crunch that is appreciated.
My recent purchase was a "Little Chef": Mortadella, Pecorino, Green Olive and Parsley. Very basic, very salty. The olive is chopped up in a muffaleta-like olive salad. Over extremely large parsley leaves, some olive oil is drizzled. The mortadella and pecorino brought a wonderful salt-nutty, combination. It is a great sandwich. This should be your go-to for daytime Williamsburg eats.
