What Columbus needs – a sandwich.
Posted by cmh gourmand on September 16, 2006
The current issue of Columbus Monthly asks many of the “annointed” ones of the city what Columbus needs. Columbus has always had a community inferiority complex – wary about not being noticed enough, always adding an Ohio to Columbus when mentioning the city, and apologizing to east coasters about being in the Midwest. So what does Columbus really need to be recognized.. or remembered. (An attitude adjustment – stop worrying about it). What I want – is viable public transportation.
But what Columbus NEEDS is a sandwich. New York has the Reuben; Chicago – Italian Beef; Philly – Cheesesteak; Boston – Roast Beef, Miami – Cubano, (Springfield – The Horseshoe) :>; Pittsburg – Primanti Brothers / Chipped Ham / Devonshire, and Louisville – The Hot Brown. Memorable cities have their own sandwich. If we make it – they will eat.
So my question – what should be in a Columbus sandwich? It can not be too wild. Potato Bun or white bread. After that – what else? It can not be too flashy – start your comments – let’s save Columbus.
