Be'witched Deli on 800 Washington Avenue North in Minneapolis is home to one of my favorite sandwiches, the "Asparagus". This unique sandwich is composed of formage blanc, piperade, blanched asparagus and black pepper glazed fennel on focaccia bread. The combination of soft airy bread, sweet vegetables, creamy cheese and crisp asparagus make this choice a winner. Piperade is a french side dish combining onion, green and red peppers and tomato. The black pepper glazed fennel adds an aromatic sweetness rounding out the sandwich. In addition to the sandwich, I ordered their spinach salad composed of candied pecans, smoked apple and brie cheese tossed in a light vinaigrette. The fresh salad was a nice accompaniment to the sandwich.
Be'wiched deli is always bustling at the lunch hour with warehouse district worker bees. They also do quite a bit of catering to local businesses, and offer a bike delivery program! Why call Jimmy John's when you can have a gourmet Asparagus sandwich delivered to your desk?! Even if you don't work in the warehouse district, this joint is worth the visit!
