Nothing tastes more comforting than meat that has been braised low and slow for hours until melt-in-your-mouth tender. The hearty short rib sandwich ($8) at Marché in Lewiston, Maine, features beef short ribs braised in red wine for 24 hours, resulting in a deep, yet sharp flavor. Thin slices of melting Brie packed into the bottom of the crusty foot-long roll mellow out the beef. Rosemary aioli gives a nice herby kick—although the sandwich could have benefited from even more—while the arugula brings a fresh, biting counterpoint to the overall richness of the sandwich.
