Open Faced Turkey Sandwich
Where can I find a good one? Had many of these at various truck stops as a kid on the family trips, so I know about the white bread/brown gravy version. Had a good version in Emeryville, CA at a cafeteria-style place that at least roasted their own turkeys and sliced to order.
Just out the Mass Pike in Framingham you can find hot open-faced turkey sandwiches every day at lunch at Gerards Turkey Farm. This is a wonderful little gem of a place with pie, turkey sandwiches, quiche, BBQ'd ribs and drumsticks and an ice cream window in the summer.
There's a well known diner in Somerville that must do this dish justice.
There's Zaftig's deli in Coolidge Corner, Brookline... the cold turkey is great and they do roast their own.
I went to UC, Berkeley so Brennan's is an old memory! Funny, I never went there for food... Irish coffees and beer! I always went to the China Station next door, which had the best fried dumplings with a sweet dipping sauce - really delicious! They were a must eat...but they are long out of business.
SF has great food choices!
Emeryville, huh? Next time I'm in SF I'll have to go across the bay to try the place. What's it called?
I feel that the only good ones I've tried of late have been in Northern New England (Circle Restaurant in Epsom, NH; The Shed in Stowe, VT; Adison's in Sebago, ME), but I'm sure there must be a place around Boston that has a good one. I'd be interested to hear what folks say, too!
