in atlanta, dining out


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.

Megatron – breaded pork cutlet, pickled radish, cabbage, “Stinger Sauce”
