“’The sandwich has never appeared more sublime…and that's why we love the site: for its commitment to proving the beauty inherent in a food that's often overlooked aesthetically, and for teaching us how to look at sandwiches in a whole new way.”

Jon Chonko is a graphic designer, photographer, writer, and unashamed foodie. The direct result of a good first date between his parents at a sandwich shop many years ago, Chonko has spent the last two years scouring New York’s delis, cafes, and markets for the city’s most eye-catching sandwiches. In the process Chonko has become an expert on all-things-between-bread and a (very) minor Internet celebrity thanks to his blog scanwiches.com. His unique take on sandwiches has been featured in many publications, including Wired, The New York Times, Print, and The Washington Post as well as in person at ROLFcon 2009 at MIT. Besides sandwiches, Chonko is an avid cyclist and kite enthusiast. He lives with his girlfriend and their cat in Brooklyn, New York.
