Gasperetti’s is serving Poor Boy Sandwiches for Phat Tuesday
I dropped by Gasperetti’s last week and they were sampling a Poor Boy sandwich, which by the way was delicious. Plus all this talk about Love and Valentine’s Day almost caused me to forget about Mardi Gras and Phat Tuesday and all the great food and fun.
In case you were wondering what a “Poor Boy” Sandwich consists of, here’s the deal.
A po’ boy (also po-boy, po boy, or poor boy) is a traditional submarine sandwich from Louisiana. It almost always consists of meat, usually roast beef, or fried seafood. The meat is served on baguette-like New Orleans French bread, known for its crisp crust and fluffy center.
