Choosing Favorites: Torrisi's House Roasted Turkey

It might be perfect...
I might start to have choosing favorites when it comes to sandwiches. I can't resist any longer. I hesitate to do this because as you know sandwiches are very near and dear to me. Sometimes I feel like they are my children. Choosing a single favorite would just be plain wrong.

But sometimes, you have to do what you have to do.

After hearing quite a bit of buzz about the sumptuous offerings Torrisi Italian Specialties, the new sandwich-shop-by-day, experimental-multi-course-Italian-inspired-restaurant-by-night has to offer, I had to try it for myself.

I woke up this morning, as I usually do, knowing in my heart that in this world there are bad sandwiches, mediocre sandwiches, good sandwiches, great sandwiches, and even a select few exceptional sandwiches (Nerbone, for example). But there are no perfect sandwiches.

Or so I thought.


Venturing off to work at Serious Eats this morning, I had no particular plan for lunch. Nearing lunch time, however, I was reminded of Torrisi. I had walked by it a couple of times, and every time someone in the office brought up a turkey sandwich, it was always compared against Torrisi's. I decided today would be the day I would go. Amy, who works at Serious Eats, had talked up the sandwich quite a bit, so my expectations were high.

But not high enough.

This sandwich, dare I say, is perfect. It is on an eggy, soft, perfectly moist bun. The turkey, first marinated in honey, garlic and herbs, is house roasted and thick cut. It's juicy and flavorful and probably better than anything you've ever carved up at Thanksgiving, good as that may be. There is a shmear of something a little spicy, the perfect touch of mayo (yes, please!) chopped lettuce, tomato and onion.

It works like magic. It's so good you don't want it to be over. You savor every bite hoping it won't end only to realize when you've finished the sandwich that it is actually quite filling.

But I would have eaten two.

  3. Monochromatische horloges zijn een van de replica horloges belangrijkste trends in de horloge-industrie in de afgelopen jaren, vooral met het gebruik van zwart-DLC gecoat gevallen, met soms twijfelachtige resultaten. Hoewel we niet de grootste fans van alle-zwarte horloges, we moeten toegeven dat Omega's gebruik van de blik op de goedkope Omega Speedmaster Replica was interessant. Allereerst, het kleurenschema werkt prima aan de donkere kant van de maan, en het concept van een keramische horloge is tot het uiterste gedreven: het geval, kroon, duwboten, achterkant van de replica horloges rolex behuizing, gesp en zelfs de wijzerplaat zijn gemaakt van diezelfde materiaal. En deze interpretatie, een “declinatie van grijze,” is een mooi alternatief voor degenen die een lichtere kleur willen.
