Turkey Tom at Jimmy John’s

The key to the sandwiches here is the bread. It’s white—no substitutions—and it manages to be the impossible mix of soft and chewy on the inside while flaky and golden on the outside. If you’re going to put anything on Jimmy John’s homemade bread it might as well be the Turkey Tom. It’s Jimmy John’s original sandwich and it features sliced turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, alfalfa sprouts and mayo. $4.75, multiple locations, JimmyJohns.com.

Stuffed Dates at Firefly

John Simmons, chef and managing partner of Firefly, says this dish has been a top-seller since the local chain’s debut. “We take a gooey Medjool date, remove the pit and replace it with a smoked almond, then wrap it in thick-cut apple wood-smoked bacon, lightly fry ’em and sauce them with a tangy red-wine sauce and top with blue-cheese crumbles. They’re addictive.” We second that. $4, 9560 W. Sahara Ave., 834-3814; 3900 Paradise Road, 369-3971.
