The Black Camel is opening Boar, its second sandwich bar

Popular Rosedale sandwich spot Black Camel is launching a small eight-seat shop in Midtown, and it could be open as early as next week. Like the Camel, Boar is serving sandwiches: hot veal, meatball, grilled chicken, roasted portobello and Italian sausage are all slated to be on the menu. Unlike the Camel, Boar won’t be offering breakfast (hours are from 11 am to 8 pm)—meaning no morning coffee, pastries and breakfast sammies on the go. [The Grid]
