Formed during the pandemic by Brooklyn natives Sib, Midi & Jordan, Shmackwich began as a pop up concept serving only Wagyu Chopped Cheese — a ground beef sandwich made on a grill. Chef Sib's version features heritage Wagyu beef, cheese, roasted tomato aioli, spice mix, lettuce, and tomato on a freshly baked baguette.

Red and Blue Nutcracker Cocktails
The nutcracker is to New York City's beaches and parks what the chopped cheese is to our delis — totally ubiquitous and a guilty pleasure that never disappoints. Charismatic “beachtenders” hawk these colorful and boozy concoctions all summer long anywhere crowds gather. I can’t compete with these all-stars on their turf, so I hunkered down behind the bar to come up with these love letters to these NYC icons.

Wagyu Smash Burgers
In the 20 years we've been slinging Heritage burgers, we've come to learn that our bold and beefy half-pound Wagyu beef patties are more than a top-notch show-piece layered between a bun. We love seeing them divided to make these smaller amazingly delicious smash burgers. It's a grind that is as good as a standing ribeye roast, but beef that can be incorporated into everyday meals.

Heritage Meatloaf. Hear us out here! Not all loaves are the same. We set out to create a better loaf starting with our rich Waygu ground beef that comes in patty form but is a feed-the-family workhorse, then raised the bar with high-quality ingredients and amped it all up with punches of umami.

Devils on Horseback
Wrapping things in bacon has been a practice throughout history! Devils on Horseback was created in Victorian era working class England, and the hors d’œuvre got its name because it was often paired with the equally popular Angels on Horseback (bacon wrapped oysters). Over time, oysters went from being a poor-man's food to a delicacy and the appetizer pair phased out of style, but the Devils on Horseback has seen a renaissance recently, popping up on menus all over.
