The Dogwood in Hampden has had a complicated history. But, thankfully, owners Galen (also the chef) and Bridget Sampson have re-created their vision to serve local, sustainable food in their pretty restaurant.
Now, they’ve opened The Dogwood Good to Go Sandwich Shop (911 W. 36th St.) in the quaint space on The Avenue that had been their oyster bar.
You can get several interesting sandwich combos like the turkey Rachel (smoked all-natural turkey breast, Swiss cheese, and cranberry mustard fennel slaw on marble rye, $7); the grilled veggie breakfast burrito (two pasture-raised chicken eggs, cheddar cheese, organic beans, and grilled vegetables, $7), and much more.
There are also soups, entree-size salads, and several refreshing smoothies. The shop is open from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tues.-Sat.
