Turkey and the Wolf, Mason Hereford's Irish Channel sandwich joint, is still going strong since it was named the best new restaurant in America by Bon Appetit. The former Coquette chef took the kudos in stride and just kept doing what he does: make some of the finest sandwich mashups you'll ever get your mitts around. And some Dagwoods they are, in mind-expanding combos like thick sliced local bologna slathered with English mustard, and a carpet of housemade potato chips, shrettuce (yep, that's shredded lettuce) and American cheese on grilled Pullman bread and the fine Collard melt, silky with braised collards, zesty coleslaw, and Swiss cheese on rye. Sandwich avoiders can scarf all manner of salads but do try the wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and a sprinkling of the goodness that makes an everything bagel just that. Hogshead tacos, fried chicken pot pie, it just keeps getting better. The place is sweetly off-kilter, a muddle of mixed china and flatware, funky art and super sweet servers eager to inform. The cocktail list is as off the wall as the menu. You'll be back.
