Winner: Brie-LT at Deli Ohio
Honorable mention: Philly steak sandwich at Penn Station
Ryan Miller and Ashten Tullar are living the American Dream. Their place, a minimalist delicatessen in downtown Canton, may be just 10 months old, but what the place lacks in longevity it more than makes up for in savory sandwich craft. And for that, it gets About’s Piled High Feast Award—and the cover of this issue—for an American classic.
Deli Ohio’s BLT is a hearty helping of Burning River Ale bacon wedged between romaine lettuce, tomato and house aioli on Hazel Artisan Bakery’s sourdough bread.
But as good as the BLT is, do the American thing—go off menu and order the little-known but soon-to-be cult classic Brie-LT. Miller will add a slice of soft brie that melts perfectly into its neighboring layers as he brings it out to your table.
The traditional deli sandwiches offered at the shop are made with local farm products. So, if Deli Ohio is the result of a hardworking family’s American Dream, then plowing through the menu is like Manifest Destiny. Roast beef, chicken salad, corned beef; the gang’s all here and served with chips and a pickle for less than $8.
Take it from us—whether you dine at the restaurant or carry out, don’t be afraid to go off menu, and don’t miss the Brie-LT.
