I haven't been to the square onion in years - and for no particular reason other than I'm not usually nearby at lunchtime. But it was always delicious and the first summer they opened I was adicted to their Caprese Sandwiches. Heavens knows how many of them I ate in those 3 months. Anyway, with the recent weather having been hotter than the hinges on the back door of hell, I thought a cold summer sandwich would be just the thing. So, I stroll into the Square Onion with my mouth already watering. Then, I notice the daily special, and I ordered that instead. It was the most delicious heirloom tomato sandwich! There were juicy and flavorful bright yellow heirloom tomatoes layered with softened goat cheese, fresh basil, really good quality olive oil, and balsamic vineger. All of this lovliness was inside a perfect roll -- soft and chewy on the inside, crusty and lightly toasted on the outside. I had planned on eating 1/2 today and saving the other for tomorrow, yet I found myself stuffing my face until the entire sandwich was gone. I am now sitting back in my office chair, groaning, and wondering how I'm going to face a full afternoon of work. By the way, the side I chose today was edamame salad. It was solidly good, light - yet filling, and so much healthier than usual side choices that accompany sandwiches. So, 5 Stars to the Square Onion!!! I'll be back next week!!
