Bayou Sandwich Lauded — Bayou Bakery’s (1515 N. Courthouse Road) “Muff-a-Lotta” sandwich has been named one of the 20 best sandwiches in the country by Food & Wine magazine. The Muff-a-Lotta features “a briny garlic-and-oregano-laced olive salad, salami, mortadella, smoked ham and aged provolone in a sesame-seed-studded toasted Italian roll.” [Food & Wine]

    Never been to NOLA but I do think that the sandwich is very good.

    Note to ARLnow: I would suggest changing the bold font to say “Bayou Bakery Sandwich Lauded”. This is due to the fact that “Bayou” is a restaurant in Foggy Bottom (I realize that this is an Arlington website but good journalism is good journalism).

    Also, the shawarma at Zaytinya made the list.

      Seeing your comment here regarding a sandwich…well, it made my morning.

      My arm is dripping.

  • DarkHeart

    We need a chipati/chapati restaurant.

    • SomeGuy

      It’s spelled “Chipotle.” And we have several.

        • Pan Gringe

          Or Pizza House, Ann Arbor. And yes, that would be awesome. Yum.

  • novasteve

    Is that sandwich kosher? If not should I complain and throw fits?

    • malaka

      I’m sure you will about something regardless

  • DarkHeart

    What is that red splotch on the far right of the picture?

    • YTK

      It might be an arrow pointing to one of the few remaning healthy trees trying to survive near one of the heavily traveled (ie polluted) Arlington streets.

    • Mike

      The red splotch on the right is probably a stoplight visible through the trees. I got a similar effect in some pictures I took recently – I didn’t notice when taking the photos that there was a traffic light within the frame, but on the photos it registers much more distinctly than it appeared when I was there looking at the scene.

      Looks like the photo was enhanced to only bring out the red in the umbrellas while the rest was converted to black and white. A few spots also ended up red though. Look at the rails in the center of the fence.

  • nunya

    had a dyslexic moment, thought that said…booya sandwich.

  • Mary-Austin

    Green Games are my favorite ; )

  • sunflower

    this picture reminds me of the mp spanish inquisition sketch
