Mayhem & Stout is an artisan sandwich company that specializes in flavorful, fall-off-the-bone braised meats and creative, seasonally inspired house made condiments, relishes and spreads, is officially open in Murray Hill in New York City. The owners (and friends since high school), Jay Brown and Steve Applegate started Mayhem & Stout as a weekend experiment at Brooklyn’s famous Dekalb Market in 2011. But because of Mayhem & Stout’s signature sauces and ridiculously tender meats, it didn’t take long for the demand to surpass food festivals and kiosks at a market–these delicious eats needed their own location!
With special dishes like brisket, blueberry sriracha and pickley onion or short rib horseradish creme and onion confit or the braised lamb shoulder with red harissa, tahini aioli and tzatsiki, it’s not wonder NYC’s biggest BBQ foodies demanded Brown and Applegate open up a restaurant, instead of teasing them at various festivals. I’ve tried almost everything on their seasonal menu (and you will too as nothing on the menu is above $11) and I haven’t been disappointed. I promise you, this is the type of food that can comfort your entire soul, but leave you feeling light as a feather. Not a meat eater? They’ve got you covered! Mayhem & Stout offers veggie options, including melt-in-your-mouth vegetarian meatballs. Seriously, I can promise you an orgy of flavors in your mouth.
Applegate and Brown are passionate about utilizing seasonal ingredients whenever possible, and they source the majority of their produce and ingredients from local purveyors, which means that they change their menu several times a year, and enjoy experimenting with new marinades, sauces and vegetables. To date, Mayhem & Stout has more than 50 original, homemade sauces and add-ons on their revolving menu. Their creations are served on warm, fresh baked bread from Caputo Bakery in Brooklyn and paired with Boylan’s sodas and Cup and Compass teas.
