|Gastronomico's cured salmon sandwich|
|Order at the counter of the bus-themed cafe|
Anyway, the sandwiches are legit. Cured salmon paired up in a lush way with avocado on a ciabatta bun, and my friend had a Groupon so it wasn't quite as painful to pay $10 for a sandwich. She got the salad sampler, with Brussels sprouts, squash and cauliflower, but felt there could be a few more options for vegetarians on the menu. Sandwiches include Ecuadorian pulled pork ($7.50), grilled cheese, specials like a squid po-boy and an organic turkey burger. A few mains include braised shortribs ($14), free-range roast chicken, crispy pork belly with yams ($11) and fried organic eggs with sauteed greens.

Lots of sides can be combined for a meal or added to a main course: crispy Yukon gold potatoes, roasted beets, brown rice and kale.
A chance to try desserts like ricotta donut holes with blackberry coulis or banana chocolate upside-down cake sound like they'd make another visit to this slighty odd but sincere spot worthwhile.
