Melt Sandwich Shop in White Plains


My friend and colleague Matt Richter (see him on Twitter here) was kind enough to offer me a piece of the pulled pork grilled pizza he picked up a the brand new Melt Sandwich in White Plains. It opened at the beginning of June.

Holy hannah … is that thing is good. It’s got slow roasted barbecue pork, fresh tomatoes, red onions, aged white cheddar and chipotle barbecue sauce.

The concept at Melt is simple: choose your bread, choose your meat from the daily smokes and roasts, then choose the type of sandwich combination to match.

There are a bunch of slow roasted and smoked meats dailiy, like aged beef top round or hickory smoked black forest ham; and then different stuff you can combine them with, like “The mushroom: sauteed onions, mozzarella, au jus” or “The BLT: aplewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo.” There are also soups and sides, and a list of salads. And then of course the grilled pizza. Mmmm.

Owners Bill Hall and Kristin Mulrane make everything fresh daily — including the flat bread itself. This will call for further investigation next week. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, here’s the PDF of the Melt Sandwich menu.

It’s at 277 Mamaroneck Ave. near Carhart, in White Plains. 914-358-1364.

  1. I’ve just eaten a sandwich from MELT and it was extremely disaapointing. I ordered the BBQ pulled pork on a short roll with the BBQ topping; there was extremely little meat (what there was, was dry)and not a drop of BBQ sauce in the meat or the topping or on the roll.

    There was nothing except pleasant staff to recommend it.

  2. Love Melt! Have had flat bread sandwiches and the grilled pizza, everything has been yummy. My favorite is the italian gilled pizza.

  3. This place is fabulous! I do not normally like sandwiches, but went there because my teenage son was hungry. We tried the bacon and cheese with beef.
