Hi All,

I'm craving sandwiches lately...any great ones at Farmer's Market? I like all kinds of sandwiches as long as they're good: Italian-style subs, muffalettas, panini, croque monsieurs, etc.

Thanks, Hounds!

  1. A plain and simple corned beef sandwich (ask for it lean) from Magee's. Try a side of the carrot or chopped vegetable salad (I think they call it a Greek salad, but it's not a traditional Greek salad) along with it.

    1. Thanks, D. Where is Magee's in relation to the pizza place, the Gumbo Pot or Monsieur Marcel? (I'm still gettimg oriented there slowly...)

        Magee's is on the East end (opposite end from Gumbo Pot). It's along the North wall, near an entrance.

        I go to the FM all the time. I don't think there are any spectacular sandwiches there, but I agree with the Magee's recommendation. Only problem is, I wish there were three halves!

      2. I lile the muffaletta at the Gumbo Pot. Not as good as Progress or Central Groceries in N.O. where they are assembled when you order, whereas at the Gumbo Pot they are made in the morning each day and kept in the fridge where they get too cold. They over warm them in the microwave if you don't tell them to not nuke it. I just let it warm for a few minutes in the bag so the bread does not suffer from the effects if the microwave and it's pretty darn good. The Gumbo Pot sells halfs and whole muffalettas and a half is plenty for one, get a whole if you will be sharing!

        1. I like the sandwiches at the French place.

          1. I like the Blackened Catfish Po'Boy at the Gumbo Pot.

              I second the Blackened Catfish Po Boy from the Gumbo Pot. Used to eat this sandwich once a week when I worked in Beverly Hills. Awesome. The paper thin slices of lemon on top of the spicy catfish are perfect. Get an order of the Creole Mustard Potato Salad, take your order over to the beer bar across the seating area from the Gumbo Pot, and order a Stella.
