Sandwiches at the Movies: Yea or Nay?

January 24, 2011 6:59 am · Posted by Nancy Einhart

I've been known to sneak sandwiches into movies and — understandably — get a hard time for it. But at the Sundance Kabuki, you can order a sandwich and a cocktail to enjoy in the theater, making it my favorite movie venue and helping me justify my behavior.

Better yet, Kabuki's sammies, like the turkey club (below) and Kalua pork, are yummy and relatively easy to eat in the dark. I think sandwiches at the movies make sense — at least, a hell of a lot more sense than, say, hot soup, which I kid you not, I recently saw two people eating at the movies. So tell me: would you order a sandwich at the movies?

Sandwiches of the Rich and Famous

I bristle at paying more than $10 for a sandwich (though I will, if it's worth it), so a $100 sandwich isn't on my sand wish list. Every few years, it seems, some chef dreams up a buzzworthy sandwich or burger stuffed with luxury ingredients and promoted by its high price tag. This week, it's cheese sandwich that costs $176.

Created by Chef Martin Blunos for England's Frome cheese show, the double-decker sandwich features bespoke white truffle cheese (price: 92 pounds), quail egg, heirloom black tomato, "epicure apple," figs, a few veggie flourishes and — get this — a sprinkling of gold dust.

While I'd like to try the bespoke cheese, tomatoes, figs, and apples seems like an odd combo to me, and why ruin a good sandwich with sourdough? (Sorry, not a sourdough fan; leave your angry remarks in the comments.)

Clare's Deli, Delivers to Your Barstool

After a sunny Saturday in Dolores Park, the gang and I headed to 500 Club in the Mission, which has long been one of my favorite dive bars but scores even more points now thanks to its alliance with Clare's Delicatessen & Late Night Kitchen. The next-door deli is super cute, and the sandwiches are above average, but the best part is you can place your order at the deli counter and they'll deliver the sandwiches to the bar. Our six-sandwich order was ready in a flash and deliciously fulfilling. Click through to hit the scene.

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Dharma Blue Cafe

Before our recent weekend in New Orleans, Andrew and I stopped off in my hometown in Pensacola, FL, for a short visit and a sandwich.

Apart from its <a target="_blank" href="../Great-Grouper-Sandwich-Quest-6866619">grouper sandwich</a> and good <a target="_blank" href="../Muffuletta-Fried-Oyster-PoBoy-Gulfuletta-Sort-6952082">po'boys</a>, P'cola isn't really a sandwich town, but you can find plenty of good Southern food, including fried green tomatoes. Andrew got this fried green tomato club over lunch at Dharma Blue cafe on a perfect spring day. We were expecting more of a modified BLT, with fresh lettuce. But this was like a grilled cheese with tomato and bacon. Very fried . . . but well executed. I'd be interested in trying the BLT approach too.
