Sangwych changes hands, new additions

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Sangwych, a local Brooklyn-style sandwich shop at 68 Putnam Street changed hands on Aug. 1 when John Meyer, Jon Malm and Bobby Holt purchased the deli from former owner Ron Farber.

Though Farber no longer runs Sangwych, the restaurateur doesn't have to worry about leaving the downtown foodie business as he also owns the fine dining bistro 28 Tables and The Metro (formerly Mare) nightclub and lounge both on Maple Avenue.

Handing the business over to Meyer, Malm and Holt was a simple switch as both Meyer and Malm have been working with Sangwych since its inception earlier this spring.

"We know how loyal our customers are and the great reputation Sangwych has so we won't deviate from that base," said Meyer in a recent statement.

The core menu will stay the same, continuing to offer Brooklyn favorites like shrimp PO boys, tuna nachos, lobster BLTs, fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil on Italian bread as well as scrumptious authentic Cannolis, homemade cookies and a variety of beverages.

 The main change is the addition of Holt, former head chef at Gaffney's and Hatties, who plans on adding an extended menu with more daily specials. Sangwych's current menu sticks to some soups, salads and sandwiches, but the new owners plan to introduce chicken wings and homemade soups to the menu sometime this fall.

Another new development is the addition of delivery service for local businesses as well as Skidmore College. The deli also accepts the Skidmore student card.

Sounds like this niche eatery (which stays open until 2 a.m. Friday through Saturday - genius for those with the late night Caroline Street munchies, but want something other than pizza) is only going to get better this fall.
