A Sandwich Isn’t Only a Sandwich: Tuna Sandwich at Medici
Today was a gorgeous Winter day in Chicago. At 1pm CST, the temperature was in the 40s (farenheit). I needed to get from behind this laptop and feel the warm sun on my face before my time for lunch was over and I had to return to work.
Since I worked from home today and I didn’t feel like cooking (yes that happens), I decided to go grab some fast food. When you see food differently, fast food doesn’t have to be the equivalent to a frozen hamburger patty and something fried on the side. Side Note: Trust me I am human. Once in a while, you will find me in the drive-thru at White Castle.
I put on my jacket and waterproof boots to walk to Medici. Medici is located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood on 57th Street between Kenwood Avenue and Kimbark Avenue. They have to areas: the bakery/deli and a sit down restaurant.
I typically order a chocolate croissant and go about my day. Today, I decided to order a sandwich. There were too many deli sandwiches to choose from so I built my own sandwich. I ordered tuna salad on sliced cranberry walnut bread with mixed greens and cucumbers.
For about $8, I was very pleased with my tuna sandwich with fresh bread and vegetables. You can go somewhere else and get a sandwich, side, and drink for about the same price. What I adore about Medici is that they bake their own breads from scratch. You read that right. It isn’t just fresh; but the bread is fresh and made from scratch 🙂 That is an extra gold star in my book.
Medici took an average tuna sandwich and kicked up a notch. If you are in the Hyde Park area, check Medici out. It is worth a try.
