DUMBO's not exactly famous for its great dining options, but the neighborhood is starting to redeem itself among sandwich lovers, who can enjoy fancy grilled cheese and made-to-order goodness. Now comes specialty purveyor Untamed Sandwiches in "Dumbo Heights"—the name of the Kushner development (yes, that Kushner) in the old Jehovah's Witness buildings.

The Midtown-born sandwich shop opens today at 117 Adams Street, a big (for DUMBO) space with seating for 35 people who aren't compelled to eat lunch at their desks. The eatery's schtick is approachable sustainability. "Extra high-quality proteins in an exceedingly simple, sandwich format," co-founder Andy Jacobi told us yesterday. "We're very dogmatic about where we source ingredients from. 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, grass-raised pork, free range chicken. We use local produce whenever we can."

The menu's similar to the offerings in Bryant Park, including the popular "The Butt," with cider-braised pork butt, broccoli rabe, pepper jelly, dijon mustard, and sharp cheddar. The Brooklyn shop will also see the return of the shop's original The Chupacabra, made with red wine-braised goat, roast chermoula carrots, kohlrabi slaw, red onion, and whipped goat cheese.

Vegetarians can look for the Sheemaker's Bounty, a charred broccoli sandwich with fried almond butter and pickled raisin jelly.

Bread comes courtesy of Grandaisy Bakery, who supply the ciabatta for all of the sandwiches (there's a gluten-free option, too). Those eschewing bread entirely can opt for any of the braised meats served as mixed green salads with a lemon vinaigrette dressing, and they'll have chili and housemade cookies on offer, too.
