Politics aside -- if you can set politics aside -- Chick-Fil-A has lots of fans of its sandwiches. For those who are boycotting the chain for its anti-gay-marriage stance, yesterday Jonathan Shikes served up five chicken-sandwich options in town.
Turns out we missed one: at Cafe Options, a terrific downtown spot that not only serves good food, but serves the greater good by training people for careers in the food industry.
You missed perhaps the greatest one at Cafe Options on Wednesdays. Their chicken cutlet sandwich with sriracha mayo and homemade sweet pickles is to DIE for. It must be good, considering the line is out the door most Wednesdays. Plus, you are helping a good cause, so in my mind, that's a win/win/win.
Great tip, Meg. Now, can you help us with another question? Who makes the best chicken parm sandwich in town? Our former favorite appears to have flown the coop. Anyone?
