Mindy B’s Deli, a new Downtown deli, challenged locals to a Sandwich Throwdown and they answered the call. The Sandwich Throwdown is a Facebook centered contest in which the winner’s creation will be placed on Mindy B’s Deli’s menu in their name for a full year.
Round one of the contest consisted of fans placing their creations on Mindy B’s Facebook page for others to “like”. The three sandwiches with the most likes have now advanced to round 2 of the Sandwich Throwdown. “These three sandwiches will be featured on our menu starting Monday June 4 and will run as features through June 15. The one that sells the most during that two week period will be crowned the Sandwich King or Queen and will have their creation on our menu for an entire year! “, announced Chef Mindy. The three sandwiches being featured are:
"The Rockefeller" created by Chris Grant which consists of Toasted Sourdough bread, Roast Beef, Corned Beef, Pastrami(cold), Cheddar and Pepperjack cheese, green leaf lettuce, mayo and thousand island dressing mix (50/50), and a dash of cayenne pepper to top it off, for folks wanting a little spice.
“The Ruby Slipper” created by Angela Hanley which consists of House roasted turkey breast, apple wood smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, arugula, mayo and cranberry sauce, served on Bluff View garlic ciabatta.
“The Planet Altered Pita Pocket” created by Linda Sines which consists of Pita Pocket, Cream cheese, sliced tomato, cucumber slices, fresh mushrooms and onions (optional). Generous drizzle with "blonde" honey mustard dressing (honey, mustard, mayo).
“Come to the deli and purchase one, all or multiples of these creations to see your favorite be crowned the Sandwich King or Queen!” For more information about the “Sandwich Throwdown”, contact Mindy Benton at 521-7932, Mindy.B.Deli@gmail.com.
