Perhaps that is what makes their sandwiches "artisan." Or perhaps not. So far as I know, "artisan" means a person who makes things. So, an "artisan sandwich" would be a sandwich made by a person who makes sandwiches. Some other local shops offer "artisanal" foods -- cheese, bread, olive oil. I don't know what "artisanal" means, but I assume it's better than "artisan." Otherwise why bother with the extra letters?
This sighting on this morning's walk introduced me to the concept of "tailored salads." Does that mean they measure you and make a salad that is the right size for you?
"Local Pastry" I get. I have nothing against bagels from New York or beignets from New Orleans, but I would rather have mine made locally.
Using Wikipedia's definition of "gourmet," Blue Fog's "grab 'n go" would be for "people of refined taste and passion." Not sure I am up to that, but I would love to find some place offering "curated coffee."
