Tom Colicchio, chef and co-owner of New York City's noted Craft and Craftbar restaurants, opened 'wichcraft in the summer of 2003, bringing "fine dining and distinctive ingredient combinations" to a new place: between two slices of artisan bread. Everything is made with green- market produce and antibiotic- and hormone-free meats. Ten units are in New York, one in San Francisco and one in Las Vegas. Expect at least three more before the end of the year.
