A new sandwich shop with food truck cred moves into a Houston bar: Ready for food named after witches?

Another food truck concept is going brick and mortar — kind of — with the opening of Sandy Witch Sandwich Company in the kitchen at Grand Prize Bar. (Eric Sandler of Eater first broke the news.) 

This is the latest concept from Anthony Calleo, owner of the irreverently distinctive Pi Pizza Truck. "I fucking love sandwiches, man," Calleo told Eater. "I think I have something to offer." 

From attendee feedback at a tasting dinner, those offerings include choices like chicken parmesan, pulled pork and Philly cheesesteak, all named after witches — think occultist Madame Blavatsky, Marie "Queen of the Voodoos" Laveau and Aleister Crowley, the English mystic and magician.

The sandwich shop expects to open in July after a kitchen upgrades and decor changes at Grand Prize, but Pi Pizza hinted that it will be serving up limited supplies of Sandy Witch sneak peek menu items in the meantime.
