What could be better in the middle of the day than a hearty sandwich paired with a freshly brewed coffee to perk you up and keep you going for the rest of the afternoon? That’s the idea behind Bewley’s new collaboration with Dublin eatery Jackrabbit. Every day, Chef Ian Marconi will create a new sandwich offering for hungry Dublin foodies that will be served alongside Bewley’s iconic coffee from the new takeaway hatch at Bewley’s Café on Grafton Street. Each daily Jackrabbit sandwich will cost €7.95.
Three sandwiches will be offered daily – The Reuben; Ham, Cheese & Celeriac Kraut; and Cheese & Pickle with Fermented Carrot Hot Sauce, while Ian will create an additional special sandwich of the day, announced on his Instagram that morning @jackrabbiteats. There will also be vegan Vietnamese Summer Rice Paper Rolls with Roasted Chilli Peanuts and dipping sauce available each day. “At Bewley’s, we are all about serving local Irish produce, and supporting local is at the heart of our business,” says Cól Campbell, Managing Director at Bewley’s Grafton Street.
Sandwiches are available for takeaway only at the newly opened takeaway hatch at Bewley’s Johnson’s Court entrance, open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm (9am to 6pm the week of June 28 to July 3) and Sundays from 9am to 5pm.
Ian Marconi first opened Jackrabbit in 2015 with a street food and catering offering featuring traditional takeaway-style dishes but expertly created and full of flavour and fresh ingredients. His sauces and rubs have become legendary and feature throughout his delicious fare, which is currently available by ordering online for delivery or collection from Churchtown Stores on Dublin’s Braemor Road, jackrabbit.ie
