All good things come to an end, at least temporarily. One night of Restaurant Week gluttony remains — two, if you count the restaurants extending their menus through tomorrow  — and lunch's last hurrah is (sniff) today.

So I had to jam in one last lunch special: the tangy tower of meat, cheese and spicy veggies called the Spicy Spring Sandwich. As I type, this bundle of fire ($7.99) is taking its last breaths at City Market's sandwich counter; like a carriage turning into a pumpkin, it goes poof! when the sun sets tonight.

My photo doesn't do it justice, but the sandwich's chutzpah starts with two slices of toasted sourdough bread slathered in a spicy relish of mayo and minced green and red peppers. Layers of salami and Provolone follow, along with tomatoes, lettuce and banana peppers that crunch and burst and fall all around the wrapper as you eat.

To quote wine parlance, the finish is long and piquant. Sadly, though, it won't outlast Restaurant Week. But maybe they'll keep that spicy relish behind the counter.

Each week, Grazing highlights tasty, sometimes under-the-radar dishes and drinks that reflect the season. If you know of a local edible (or libation) worth making a fuss over, let me know: corin@sevendaysvt.com.
