Phillip’s Delicatessen is a small deli tucked away in Brentwood, TN. Cary and I spent a little time in New York City this year. We visited quite a few delis and Phillip’s made us very reminiscent of that trip. Phillip’s offers a variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. While many delis offer Boar’s Head products, which are quite tasty in and of themselves, Phillip’s offers Thumann’s Deli Products, and as far as I can tell, are the only place in Nashville to offer said products. I’m not sure what makes their products so good, but they are certainly some of the best quality deli meats you can get.
The Turkey Sub includes a lots of turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a splash of Phillip’s oil and spice vinegar. When you go, be sure to remember to ask them to heat up the sandwich just a bit, that way the bacon and cheese warm up just a little bit, and the softness of the bread allows it to soak up more of the tangy, savory dressing. Phillips has lots of great offers, but I can rarely pull myself away from this sandwich.
As a side, we ordered the potato salad. This is a vinegar potato salad with red potatoes, green onions, a hint of bacon and is delightfully spiced with what we think is their dressing. This potato salad reminded me of 4th of July at my parents house.
I ordered the California Club sandwich with turkey, avocado, bacon, harvarti cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on toasted sourdough bread. The ripe avocado really brought a freshness to the sandwich, complementing the salty bacon nicely. The turkey was very fresh and tasted delightful. The sandwiches are huge. I split this with Cary. When we were in NYC, all the sandwiches cost at least $20. We feel like these were quality sandwiches at less than half that. A real bargain!
