Sandwich of the Week: Parish Café and Bar’s ‘Regal Regis’
Imagine a restaurant where famous chefs each created an ultimate sandwich for the menu. Such a place has existed in Boston since 1992, and it is called Parish Café and Bar. The café, which has locations in Back Bay and South End, is Boston A-List’s “Best Sandwich for 2013,” and the restaurant concept probably contributed to its success. Owner Gordon Wilcox had approached Boston’s best chefs, and each of them contributed their sandwich creation. One of the creations, “The Regal Regis,” makes a satisfying steak and slaw meal.
The sandwich, created by James Beard award-winning chef Susan Regis, features sliced flank steak and portobello mushrooms. The steak is prepared with a soy, scallion, and balsamic marinade, and sandwiched between Romano cheese-crusted French bread. Customers can choose either potato salad or cole slaw as a side.
If “Regal Regis” is not your thing, Parish Café has at least seventeen other sandwich choices, including chef Brook Vosika’s “The Bristol,” Joanne Chang’s “Flour B.L.T,” Jim Burke’s “The Burke,” and more. Nevertheless, when ordering a steak sandwich at one of Boston’s best sandwich places, you can’t go wrong.
