The eatery opened in February and has uses a family pickle recipe that's been around since 1901.

'We are a sandwich shop but in lieu of bread, we use our Elsie signature pickle, or you can have any of our sandwiches constructed on a cucumber roll-up,' co-owner Katherine Cohen told Thrillist

She continued, "So essentially we're a sandwich shop without bread ... So you bite into a sandwich and, instead of that soggy bread, you have that crisp, crunchy pickle."

Co-owner Chad Jordan added, "You think about every sandwich you've ever had, and it always comes with a pickle. Well, why not have a sandwich on a pickle?"
