Blue Line Sandwich Co. opening soon in the CBD_lowres

Blue Line Sandwich Co. is opening a second location at 514 S. Rampart St.

A new Blue Line Sandwich Co. (2023 Metairie Road, Metarie, 504-309-3773) is coming to the Central Business District, possibly as soon as Wednesday.

[jump] Chef and owner Brad McGehee says his team hopes to open the second location of the Metairie Road sandwich spot in the coming week.

The new breakfast and lunch hub takes over the building at 514 S. Rampart St., which was most recently home to the Mexican restaurant Las Margaritas.

At the new location, McGehee says the menu will be very similar, if slightly expanded, from the menu at the original (although that menu also has been expanded, he says). A grilled breakfast burrito features pulled pork, diced ham, bacon jam, spinach, potatoes, onions and hatch chilies with Sriracha sour cream. There also are several salads on the menu, including a Thai chicken version with quinoa, McGehee says. Familiar Blue Line menu items include theagrilled chicken BLT, a grilled cheese sandwich with caramelized onions and a turkey and avocado sandwich on wheat bread.

The new spot has 5,000-square-feet plus a patio, which will allow for more volume as well as private-dining options, McGehee says.

The restaurant has a full bar.

Blue Line Sandwich Co. will be open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
