They come with high-quality mixture like caviar, vodka aioli, Serrano ham, Manchego cheese, kimchi, hoisin salsa and applewood bacon.
A standout is “The Ancient Nordic,” that is surfaced with a inexhaustible store of tender, tender lobster meat, bleu cheese, caramelized onion and unbelievably delicious smoked salmon, all pressed into a buttery, toasted bun. It’s a uninformed spin on a New England classic.
