It was 1762, John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich who was the first Sea Lord, and commanded the mighty British Navy, was a noted explorer, and also a dedicated gambler and loved Las Vegas. Especially playing hours on end; Hi Limit Poker.
It was at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino where he was staying and while playing in their Poker Room when he came up with the ingenious idea of putting meat between two slices of bread. No breaks for him and not even a dinner break. So he had the Cocktail Waitress have the first sandwich ever made by asking for a nice piece of meat placed between two pieces of bread. This was nourishment so he could continue his winning streak. From then on it did not matter if he was fighting a great sea battle or laying down a Royal Flush, you will always find the Earl of Sandwich with a “sandwich” in one hand...
The Tuna Melt sandwich is a great treat at any time, even 3 AM in the Morning. Most if not all their sandwiches are amazing. The breads are fluffy and light. The Salami Sandwich combo with a nice soup like Tomato Basil or Chicken Tortilla is a great choice.
Whether it is a hot sandwich (Roasted Beef, Cheddar & Horseradish Sauce), hand crafted wraps (Buffalo Chicken Wrap), fresh salads (Earls Cobb), Artisan soups(Butternut Squash), baked shop (Ice Cream Sandwich)or breakfast(Fresh Fruit Yogurt Parfaits) the Earl of Sandwich is where you want to catch that dreamy delight!
