Everyone in Bay Ridge is talking about food blogger Sarah Zorn’s renowned panini, which took home the grand prize the Robicelli’s Gourmet Market sandwich contest at the Third Avenue Festival on Sunday — but what do the minds and mouths of the Fourth Estate have to say?

After downing a few Zorns, The Brooklyn Paper’s elite team of food journalists concurred that concoction — which comprises prosciutto, roasted tomato and eggplant, Brie, and a balsamic reduction atop ciabatta — earned its praise.

“This is exceptional — don’t change a thing!” said Senior Reporter Ben Muessig. “It takes a special sandwich to carry a $9 pricetag, but this sandwich is just that special.”

Newly anointed Brooklyn Paper reporter Will Yakowicz called the sandwich “harmonious and balanced,” and later suggested that the combination of interplay between the roasted eggplant, warm Brie, and salty prosciutto was “historic.”

But Brooklyn Paper naysayer and editor Gersh Kuntzman deemed the Brie too “gummy … gummy” and the eggplant too chunky, suggesting instead an aged provolone and a more thinly sliced vegetable medley.

“I don’t use chunks of eggplant — I just don’t do it,” Kuntzman said.
