Villains Wicked Heroes, the anticipated sandwich shop from Alex Brounstein (Grindhouse), Jason McClure (FLIP Buckhead), and Jared Lee Plyes (HD1) just opened in Midtown this week.
Having all week had a strong craving for a satisfying sandwich, I decided to make an early visit, which can be risky. But it’s a sandwich shop, I wouldn’t expect there to be quite the length of time to dial in the kitchen.
Even still, I won’t go on about every single thought. I will say, based on what I read I expected the sandwiches to be a little heftier. I wouldn’t say they are much more filling than a Victory Sandwich, whose sandwiches are at half the price point. The bread is certainly larger at Villians, but I like the amount of filling in a sandwich to leave little dead space.
The patio was fantastic on a superb Atlanta spring afternoon. I may have had a nice Avery Joe’s pilsner for $4 with my lunch, but fret not, I still made it in to the gym after work.
Kingpig of Crime – porchetta, arugula, garlic aioli
Personally, the combined heat from the arugula and garlic is a bit much for me, I’d sub the garlic and create a more cutting aioli. Maybe add mustard.
Hail Nero (kale Caesar salad) & Soba and Kale Salad
Megatron – breaded pork cutlet, pickled radish, cabbage, “Stinger Sauce”
