The #6, Julie Rye is named after Marybeth Brennan's (Mark's sister and Chad's wife) friend named Julie Ray. Marybeth and Julie worked together in the printing business for a number of years, and when the restaurant opened in 1997 Julie came up with this creation. It has been on the menu since day one and continues to be a popular and healthy turkey sandwich.
This sandwich is made with Roasted Turkey Breast, Scallion Sour Cream, Muenster Cheese, Cucumbers and Spinach on Zingerman's Jewish Rye.
The Scallion Sour Cream on the sandwich is a great substitute for mayonnaise. It not only adds a different flavor than most people are used to, but it is healthier than mayo as well.
While eating this sandwich, I was reminded of summer. The sandwich is always served cold, and the cucumbers and spinach add a cool crispness. Although I could only eat half the sandwich (as always), it did not feel heavy on my stomach. The rye bread also complimented the other ingredients well, and it is served as fresh rye, rather than grilled, which made the sandwich even more healthy.
Although this was my first time trying this sandwich, it is something that I will order again in the future.
