Schlotzsky’s Windy City Pastrami & Swiss Reviewed by BrandEating.com

http://www.brandeating.com/2015/06/review-schlotzskys-windy-city-pastrami-swiss-sandwich.html

Schlotzsky’s Deli’s Windy City Pastrami & Swiss features sliced pastrami and melted Swiss cheese with Dijon mustard and signature dressing served on oven-baked Dark Rye bun.

I got the medium (8″) for $7.20 courtesy of a gift card from the company.

The Windy City Pastrami & Swiss is one of three “Route 66 Sandwiches” that returned to  Schlotzsky’s this summer and is inspired by Chicago. At the center of the “Windy City” is, of course, the pastrami. Schlotzsky’s pastrami was juicy and flavorful with a light smokiness. On top of that, they gave me enough that there was no question as to what was the star of the sandwich.

The Swiss cheese was a surprisingly strong ingredient. I’m not usually a fan of Swiss and feel it often doesn’t provide much (albeit that’s probably due to the cheese quality rather than Swiss in general). But melted onto the pastrami, it provided a warm, almost gooey consistency throughout.

The Dijon mustard was tangy and a little bit spicy. It was also used pretty liberally. Schlotzsky’s signature dressing was hardly noticeable under it but every once in a while I got a bite that had more of a lightly-sweet, vinegary taste, which I imagine came from the dressing.

The Dark Rye bun didn’t seem too different from Schlotzsky’s usual sourdough bread. It was spongy but solid. If anything, the taste was just a bit more grainy than the sourdough.

Overall, I enjoyed Schlotzsky’s Windy City Pastrami & Swiss. The main ingredients worked well together and the supporting cast contributed positively. I’ve never been to Chicago and associate pastrami more with New York, but if this is the combo I can expect, I’ll definitely be picking one up if I ever find myself there.

Schlotzsky’s Tax Day Promotion Featured on USAToday.com

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/04/14/tax-day-freebies-april-15-promotions-hard-rock-cafe-schlotzskys/25764879/

Myth: Tax Day is for sulking.

Reality: Tax Day is for eating — often for free, or at a fat discount.

That, at least, is what more than a half-dozen of the more familiar names in Food Land want you to think. They are turning April 15 into an annual eat freebie — or almost free — fest. Although it doesn’t have the size and scope of Veterans Day or Mother’s Day free food promotions, it’s getting there.

“It’s the biggest layup of the year for restaurants,” says Derek Farley, a public relations consultant. “You have the ‘Whew?’ crowd and the ‘Amen!’ crowd partying with the ‘Oh No’ crowd, and they all have something in common: They want a drink.” Or a nibble.

Here’s what’s on tap — or on the plate:

• Dinner — for a song. Take that literally. At select Hard Rock Cafe locations nationwide on April 15, from about 5 to 7 p.m. local time, folks with the courage to take the stage and belt out a song can get a free “Local Legendary Burger” — created and prepared by a chef “to ease the burden of Tax Day,” says John Galloway, chief marketing officer.

• Almost-free sandwich. Get a free, small “The Original” sandwich at Schlotzksky’s nationally when you purchase a 32-ounce drink and a bag of chips April 15. For novices, “The Original” is made with ham, salami, cheddar, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese — and topped with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and signature dressing.

• Free chips and queso. OK, there’s a catch. You have to say “Taxes Shmaxes” to the cashier at California Tortilla locations when you place your order April 15, but after that, the chips and queso are on the house.

• Free dessert. Guests who eat at Tony Roma’s restaurants April 15 receive a coupon for a free Red Velvet Cake dessert at participating locations on their next visit, valid through April 29.

• Free cookie. For folks in need of a free sugar rush on Tax Day, for the third consecutive year, Great American Cookies locations nationally will hand out the chain’s regular sugar cookies to customers who stop by and ask for one. What’s more, jokesDavid Kaiser, brand vice president, “no proof of completed taxes is necessary.”

• Free shaved ice. Kona Ice plans to show up at post offices, tax prep centers and near business locations across the country April 15, to hand out free cups of its tropical shaved ice. Yes, it will hand out Hawaiian leis with the shaved ice. The best way to find a truck near you is to tweet @KonaIce with your exact location.

• Buy one, get one meal. Boston Market offers this deal: Customers who buy one Individual Meal get a second Individual Meal for free — including the new, Slow Braised Pulled Pork and Rotisserie Chicken Platters (which includes choice of two sides and cornbread).

Serena Lissy – Viva L’Italia – Hooray for Italy

http://serenalissy.com/viva-litalia-hooray-for-italy/ 

I was invited to attend a preview of the new menu items for Schlotzsky’s a few weeks back. I’m pretty selective about attending these events since I’m a pastry gal and most of these are a culinary experience. I agreed to attend this event because it has been a very long time since I have dined on a Schlotzsky’s sandwich and the new menu intrigued me.

Growing up in the midwest, one could say bread was a daily menu item for me. I pretty much love everything about bread. I eat it, I cook it, I enjoy it, and a fresh homemade loaf is usually always part of any gift I give someone. Growing up with white Wonder brand bread, I have seen many changes in bread over the years. And I couldn’t be more excited about the Schlotszky’s house made Italian Ciabatta roll.

They serve up three sandwiches on this roll. The Sicilian, (shaved ham, provolone cheese,  pepperoni, salami, bell peppers, olives and pepperoncini). The Caprese (mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, mayo, field greens, onions, basil pesto and a balsamic glaze). And the Tuscan (hand carved roasted turkey breast, pepper jack cheese, Roma tomato, field greens, bacon, cilantro, and chipotle aioli). Once I got over the awesomeness of these sandwiches I was excited to try the pasta dishes and the pizzas.

Schlotzsky_Sandwiches

I must say the sandwiches are still my favorite, but with their adventurous recipes, and fresh flavor options like Tomato Basil Canestrelli, Sausage and Pepper with Goat Cheese Canestrelli, Chicken Pesto Carbonara and Bayou Chicken Canestrelli, they are pretty much serving up dishes that make me want to shout hooray for Italy!
