Beach Street Sandwiches: Celebrity Chef on Wheels

Stephanie Webster

On June 19th, BEACH STREET SANDWICHES, the Shoreline’s first gourmet sandwiches truck, operated by Chef Gregory McCarty, ex- Nobu and Jean Georges Chef, opens for business during Madison CT's Flea Market on the Green. 

Beach Street Sandwiches is Chef Gregory McCarty’s latest project, a shop on wheels serving sandwiches, because everything is better on bread." The chef is best known for his menu development and execution at Nobu 57 and Jean Georges Vongerichten’s Bahamian outpost, Dune. 

For the next month, Beach Street Sandwiches will be running truck-less, setting up a table at various shoreline events, the first of which is June 19 ’s Madison Lions Club Flea Market, taking place from 9am-3pm on the Madison Green.

Beach Street Sandwiches serves a rotating menu of five sandwiches created and prepared by Chef McCarty using well-sourced ingredients from local farms and purveyors. The sandwiches, like the Chef’s resume, are extraordinary. Order a Smoked Ham and Cheese and you’ll enjoy succulent, tender, pulled pork smoked over wood chips from a barrel that last held marinating Tabasco peppers. Each bite offers layers of flavors, which is the chef’s signature. Other sandwiches include Stuffed Turkey on cranberry multigrain, South-East-Asian Vegetarian, and Steak and Greens on Garlic Bread. Soups like Mulligatawny and Roasted Zucchini with Apple and Mint will also be on the menu, and will be served To-Go at the June 19  event.

Chef McCarty says he opened the Beach Street Sandwiches because anything can make a good sandwich, and everything’s better in bread.

After the June 19  Flea Market, advance orders for events like Concerts on the Green may be placed by emailing Chef McCarty – – to talk pricing and timing. No substitutions, but consideration can be made for allergies and dietary restrictions. Menu will be listed on the website:
