From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Graham Elliot's latest project is all about the humble sandwichand, says admirer Michael White, "bringing his whimsical culinary style to a fast-casual setting." The shop smells like popcorn (in a good way) and has chalkboard bathrooms where self-expressionand toilet humorare encouraged. Waiters call out orders for pastrami on rye and house-made sodas while Graham, in white-framed glasses, greets customers. It's the most fun you'll have pre-cocktail hour, and that's before you've tried his take on grilled cheese: Wisconsin cheddar, prosciutto, tomato marmalade, and cheese curd on Pullman bread (sandwiches, $10).
Must eat: Beef short rib with baby watercress, shoestring potatoes, and pickled shallots on pretzel bread.
Chef Graham Elliot's favorite new restaurant: Giovanni Passerini's Rino, Paris 2011 Hot List
