After two years of observing the staffers from Day by Day smoking by the dumpster, unloading delivery trucks, and packing up catering vans as I walked to work each morning, it was nice to finally sample their offerings on a recent lunch date with Wes and Wayne. Day by Day serves up soups, sandwiches, and a variety of weekly specials colorfully written on blackboards both outside and inside the restaurant. Most of their fare is classic Americana, but there are a few Asian, Latin, and Southern twists thrown in to keep things from veering toward boring.


Wes ordered a turkey club with bacon, while Wayne had the quiche Lorraine. Wayne thought the quiche was great and really hit the mark. Day by Day offers a different variety of quiche each week. Wes liked his sandwich as well, but didn’t have much of an appetite this afternoon which was a shame.

I thoroughly enjoyed my panini with smoked turkey, cheddar and mango chutney. The multigrain bread was especially memorable, as was the mango chutney which was sweet, sticky, and tart. I love sandwiches with fruity elements! The panini was served atop a lightly dressed bed of greens that was quite good, but the panini was definitely the highlight.
