August is National Sandwich Month! What’s your favorite in the Valley?

“When someone ‘owes’ me lunch, I try to make them pay with a mesquite-broiled filet mignon club from Durant’s. It’s an epic bite, and the power-lunch people-watching is nonpareil.”
— Craig Outhier, editor

“What’s the tea? Cha Cha’s Tea Lounge has stellar sammies! My fave: The plant-based pesto and avocado sandwich, with roasted eggplant, house-made pistachio pesto, arugula and fresh avo tucked in focaccia. The bread is somehow crisp, crunchy and doughy all at once, and pairs perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.”
— Madison Rutherford, associate editor

“It’s not in the budget to travel to Paris, but I am grateful that I can get a taste by going to Cafe Paris. They have the most delicious croque monsieur ever! It’s made with ham, melted Swiss cheese, Dijon mustard and a béchamel sauce, with a side green salad. Everyone needs to run here and try this!”
— Angelina Aragon, managing art director

“I can’t stop ordering the Shabazi at Twist Hot Chicken: super crunchy – and hella juicy – fried chicken, red cabbage slaw, zhoug (a spicy Middle Eastern sauce made with herbs, chiles and spices) and tangy, creamy tahini sauce.”
— Leah LeMoine, managing editor

“The Noble Eatery Caprese. It’s got a hearty helping of creamy burrata packed along with arugula, tomato and saba into a hearty, scrumptious, dream-stealing pide. I crave it every day!”
— Mirelle Inglefield, art director
