Best Fish Sandwich - 2005
Ahi tuna reuben
Schlafly Bottleworks' tuna reuben probably could have taken this prize on the basis of creativity alone. A tuna reuben? Well, why not? Served on a slice of Russian black bread (two slices would yield a too-dry mouthful), a tasty piece of seared ahi tuna gets a royal crowning with Swiss cheese, fresh shredded cabbage and a honey-wasabi mayo. The $9.99 price tag is a tad steep, but they do throw in a little salad on the side, plus some pickled ginger. It's a swell twist on a swell sandwich, and a gustatory experience you won't soon forget.
