Founded by restaurateur and five-time James Beard Award winner, and Top Chef head judge, Tom Colicchio and his trusted sous chef and co-founder Sisha Ortuzar, ‘Wichcraft is a New York City staple.
Colicchio and Ortuzar opened the first in their fast-casual sandwich shop concept in 2003. With decades of fine dining restaurant experience between them, ’Wichcraft was conceived as the perfect post-shift chef meal – delicious scraps of the best cuts of meat and local produce piled high between two pieces of bread. It quickly caught fire with foodies and novices alike, who trusted ’Wichcraft for their inventive flavor combinations, quality ingredients, and thoughtful service.
With superior sandwiches still at their core, ‘Wichcraft serves locally baked breads, housemade condiments, super grains and legumes, and wild and domestic sustainable seafood to create balanced seasonal flavor combinations.
