Turkey and the Wolf is one of the quirkiest places that you’ll ever visit! With some of the most creative and delicious sandwiches ever! The descriptor most frequently deployed for Turkey and the Wolf’s cuisine is “stoner” and sure, a Grimace plate below your collard green melt or fried bologna sandwich might underscore that notion.
But when it earned a berth in Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, and Eater‘s Best New Restaurants lists and a semifinalist nod from the James Beard Foundation in 2017, the message was clear: this goofy-ass place is seriously excellent. New Orleans reveres its sandwiches, as do chef-owner Mason Hereford and team, but what makes this Irish Channel iconoclast so noteworthy is its gleeful balance of high-end chef techniques, international culinary mash-ups, and just plain fun.
My favorite sandwich here is the Fried Bologna Sandwich because it transports me back to my childhood and kicks it up several notches. But they are also known for their collard green melt. I’m personally not a fan of collard greens so I haven’t tried it, but we have friends who have and they rave about it!
