When it comes to sandwiches, New Orleans is a po’boy town first and foremost, but Turkey and the Wolf is working to change that. Each of the sandwiches at this spot in the Lower Garden District is unique, ranging from the fried bologna topped with potato chips to the lamb neck roti. They also serve great salads, cocktails, and soft serve, but it’s the sandwiches that cause a line on the patio each morning before they open at 11am. Bring some friends so you can try most of the menu, but if you end up coming solo, order the collard green melt above all else. Even if you only have one day in New Orleans, Turkey and the Wolf is where you should go for lunch.
