Extend Thanksgiving With These Local Sandwiches

View as Map

By this point, you've finally finished the turkey and stuffing leftovers in the fridge. But in case you don't want to move on, here are some places around town to get your fix this week (and in many cases, beyond) with a classic Thanksgiving leftover sandwich. You know, the sandwich you assemble with turkey, stuffing, cranberry and maybe even mashed potatoes — basically an entire Thanksgiving dinner smushed together on bread. Some of these menu items are November specials, but many of these sandwiches are available all year, so you can celebrate Thanksgiving flavors whenever the mood strikes.
