PAYING HOMAGE to his grandmother’s southern recipes, Chef Bradley McGehee opened Blue Line Sandwich Co. in 2014. Every day of the week, Chef Bradley and his team serve savory farm-to-table breakfast and lunch options in an upscale family- oriented environment.
Blue Line uses fresh ingredients from local farms including Covey Rise Farms, Chappapeela Farms, and Crescent City Farmers Market. For breakfast, enjoy the corned beef & hatch hash featuring house-made corned beef with onions, roasted hatch chiles and diced potatoes with two eggs, and a biscuit or toast.
A crowd favorite is the duck-duck-goose waffle which features a Belgian waffle, confit local duck and sweet potato hash topped with foie gras butter, two sunny eggs and a finish of powdered sugar and cane syrup drizzle. There’s also many breakfast sandwich, omelet and a la carte options to fit your breakfast wants.
But if breakfast isn’t your thing, the lunch menu offers hearty comfort sandwiches like a grilled cheese with tomato soup, a Cuban panini, chicken salad sandwich. The St. Patty’s Day massacre combines house-made corned beef with duck pastrami, Abita-braised cabbage, and remoulade aioli on marble rye (pictured). Chef Bradley’s personal favorite is the grilled chicken BLT with bacon jam, field lettuce, Creole tomatoes on a Dong Phuong brioche bun.
Lighter options include a crab Louie salad, roasted brussels sprouts salad, Thai chicken quinoa salad and more. The full bar is stocked with a variety of local craft beers, liquor, and wine. On the weekends, enjoy the bottomless Bloody Mary bar using house-infused vodkas for only $12.
Breakfast and lunch are served from 7am to 2pm, 7 days a week. Blue Line Sandwich Co. is located 2023 Metairie Rd. 504-309-3773. bluelinesandwichco.com.
