What could possibly incentivize you to patronize a place where a sandwich, salad and cookie will set you back, oh, about $18? Here's a few ideas: housemade "bretzel" (read: pretzel) rolls (avoid the anemic whole wheat version); uncommon marriages of ingredients, such as watercress-cheddar-mango chutney and serrano ham-manchego-fennel-fig; assurances that most (but not all) ingredients are organic. Top all that off with a spiffy interior that glows with Northern European efficiency—a pleasant respite from even the most forward-thinking offices.
