The following post is written from the midst of a food coma. This morning (10 a.m.) I went to sample the new sandwiches from the Percy Street BBQ sandwich shop in the Comcast Center. Just what I needed, brisket, pulled pork, smoked ham, boneless ribs and turkey before my morning caffeine rush had subsided. But duty called and it smelled so damned good I couldn’t resist trying all of the sandwiches. Any sandwich on the menu plus a side and drink can be had for $10 (tax included).
My favorite sandwich today was the pulled pork with collard greens and Provolone. But the smoked ham with Swiss cheese was really good too. Even had me muttering that mom never made me a ham and cheese like that. Then there was the chopped brisket with fried onions an pickles. Plenty of good crunch there. By then we had decided that we would just have a different one every day. So Thursday would be the smoked turkey with tomato-bacon may and avocado. And Friday, hmm, that must be the sliced brisket then.
I predict that when Percy opens on Monday, Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook will be hit with a Federal Donuts like onslaught. Which of course begs the question:
