EVENT 9/7: Blue Sparrow Braddock’s Inspired Sandwich

Here’s how you can join Very Local and Blue Sparrow for a one-day, off-menu sandwich special at BG Open Air – located behind Brew Gentlemen in Braddock.

What happens when Pittsburgh’s global street food truck, Blue Sparrow, decides to go off-menu and find inspiration in a local neighborhood?

Stop No. 2 of our specialty sandwich series, Local x Global: BRADDOCK is a rare opportunity for you to taste what happens when Luke Cypher, head chef and owner of Blue Sparrow, is inspired by the town of Braddock.

On Saturday, Sept. 7, join us at Brew Gentlemen’s Open Air outdoor space. Taking inspiration from a steelworker’s lunch, this sandwich will be beer-braised ham on a homemade bunYou can pair it with a beer for $12. Preorder your sandwich here:

The first stop on this passport to Pittsburgh was in June, where we feasted on a kielbasa, house kraut, mustarda, and hot pepper cheese pressed sandwich seared in kimchi butter under the iconic “Welcome to Deutschtown” mural on the side of Allegheny City Brewery.

For those of you familiar with Blue Sparrow’s current menu offerings, you know that Cypher and his team typically serve items such as japchae noodles, bibimbap, or a burger with a ramen noodle bun — global street food. They make everything from scratch – from their banh mi bun to their kimchi – and this will be no exception.
