The day I write a list of bests is the day the world turns so slowly we are given a thousand hours between sunrise and sunset. Bests, bests, bests. The best sandwich is the last sandwich eaten. So very many sandwiches, and more inking up the papers every minute.
Thank you, Look-Out-Tina-Brown-Amanda for linking me to the non-inking pages of Food and Wine’s Best Sandwiches in the U.S. Thank mana they did not stretch their greasy hands worldwide. It would all just be too much.
Just around the corner from the the cozy digs of the Lunch Encounter, this Muff-A-Lotta from David Guas’ Bayou Bakery in Arlington, Virginia tops the list. Number one of twenty! Hooray for you, David, and your divine sandwich.
A barrage of familiars, astonishingly non-trendy, the list is a comforting collection of sandwich spots that have been known to deliver sybaritic sighs from those of who have not leapt off the carb wagon. I remain an attached rider, my knees hanging tight to bread, no thank you Jack Nicholson, j’adore un sandwich.
Wishing all a notable Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, this year and all years. Take each bite with note.
