A sandwich is the most basic of foods -- slap a filling in between two pieces of bread and you're good to go.
But even a basic sandwich can be high art, which is the idea behind the new Wally & Agador's Gourmet Café (3310 N. Halsted St.).
"It doesn't have to be fine dining to be great food," Lachowicz says. "All of the gourmet sandwiches at Wally & Agador's are made with the same classic French techniques that are used in a restaurant, but without the fuss and expense."
All of the sandwiches range in price from $7 to $12.
The restaurant is named after his two "diva" dogs, and the names of the sandwiches are diva-inspired as well, such as The Judy Garland, Rosie's Mambo Italiano, and The Elton John. The 16-seat restaurant is also decorated with black-and-white pictures of the divas the sandwiches are named after.
