Pork! aaaand

David Ives Foreplay (or the Art of the Fugue) reference in the title aside, it's hardly weather for miniature golf. Probably not weather for walking many blocks on your lunch hour to get a sandwich either, especially a heavy one. But Oxley's British-style pork sandwich is delicious. The bun looks small and hamburgerish, but winds up with a nice crisp texture except for when the pork begins to sink in. The pork itself is freshly carved and surely dripping with enough fat to keep you full for days; it's finished off with some spicy slaw (not too spicy but hits the spot, even for those of us who aren't really into coleslaw) and apple chutney. Alas, they have no seating area but you can relocate to the benches in front of McNally Jackson and admire some new book titles as you eat. Or, y'know, contemplate the idea of getting Oxley's to deliver next time, so you can stay in your office and avoid the 95+ degree heat.


  1. That's a pity. Guess I'll have to cancel Distrito then, if yer so full. :P

  2. Portions @ D are small; I'm sure I will rally myself to the cause...
