Monte 52 is permanently closed
At this point, it’s safe to say Highland Park has the sandwich-counter-in-the-back-of-a-convenience-store concept on lockdown. Located inside the La Tropicana Market, Monte 52 is a tiny sandwich counter that’s serving everything from gourmet fried chicken sandwiches to housemade pickles to a breakfast burrito worth waking up early to eat. That said, our favorite thing on the menu is the Cuban - pulled pork, porchetta, gruyere, pickles and mustard all pressed to form a gooey, savory heaven. It’s a tremendous sandwich and one that’ll definitely keep you full until dinner. Also, no sandwich at Monte 52 is over $10.
