Debbie's Kitchen Restaurant Review

: If you don't think a sandwich can be a work of genius, you obviously haven't been to Debbie's Kitchen. Dill havarti, smoked turkey, snow peas, pears, black-bean hummus, and roasted-garlic mayo are some of the more common things you’ll find them piling on to the legendary creations. And don't even think about driving while eating one of these monsters---you will need both hands for your lunch. Debbie doesn’t limit her magic to sandwiches, though: just take a look in the dessert case to see what we mean. Pies, brownies, cookies, tortes, mousse cakes---you probably won't have room for another bite after one of the sandwiches, but be sure to buy one for later. The shop also features an ever-changing selection of unusual side dishes and salads, most of which are vegetarian-friendly. Debbie's is great for a quick take-out lunch to eat in Washington Park (just across the street), but the cheerful space with big windows onto busy Madison Avenue and a laid-back staff make this an inviting little lunch spot as well.
