1. The “Knuckle Sandwich” at Wayfare
When you think “roast beef sandwich” in NOLA, the dominant thought is going to be one of hot, long-cooked beef, dripping with gravy and “debris”, served on po-boy bread. And, sure, it's incredibly delicious. Wayfare, however, has gone in the opposite direction, with cold roast beef, mixed with spicy horseradish aoli, and served on a soft pretzel roll with crispy potato sticks, pickled red onions, and sharp, fresh arugula, and it is just as good, if not better.
