Coastal Kitchen is ready and willing to help celebrate National Sandwich month this August with our delicious sandwich menu. More about that in a bit, but first a bit of history about the venerable sandwich. Who would have thought a 24-hour gambling session would lead to the historic creation of a favorite food? That’s precisely what happened when John Montague, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, asked for a food he could eat comfortably during a marathon gambling session in the 1700s. The chef complied by placing sliced meats between pieces of bread and the sandwich was born.
Since its invention, the art of the sandwich has evolved with the times to become an iconic part of any menu. Served cold, hot, grilled, baked, open-faced, or almost any other conceivable way, the sandwich is good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans can all enjoy their favorite variations.
