To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" and "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $15 worth of made-to-order deli cuisine at Gourmet FoodWorks Deli.
Gourmet FoodWorks Deli is a fully stocked meal stop that serves fresh salads, big burgers, and a veritable cornucopia of specialty sandwiches. The lunch menu testifies to an eclectic selection of noontime nourishment. The white-meat chicken-salad sandwich ($7.55) unites a croissant with sweet peppers and red onions, and the customer-loved twisted BLT deluxe ($7.85) pairs a half-pound of hickory-smoked bacon with FoodWorks' own pretzel bread. The spinach salad ($6.75) comes with an optional sweet poppy-seed dressing for fine dining after a Wizard of Oz reenactment, and the chicken taco salad ($7.85) is crowned with tortilla strips side-kicked by salsa. FoodWorks' soups, sauces, and dressings are always made fresh and in-house; nothing is drawn from frozen stock, unlike the entrees cryo-frozen for future generations at secret research diners scattered across the globe.
Not limited to midday palate pleasers, Gourmet FoodWorks Deli offers up piping-hot, fast-breaking breakfast fare such as the hot breakfast-burrito wrap ($6.15) or the french-toast sandwich ($5.99), which presses eggs, bacon, and a traditional french-toast batter into a delicious handheld form. Gourmet FoodWorks Deli makes large allotments of full-flavored nutrition the new non-fluctuating standard, and it’s so committed to the individual pursuit of food-based happiness that it offers diners the chance to make off-menu meal requests.
