If you are lucky enough to be on Travis and McKinney ,downtown Houston there is a Jason's Deli I frequent. It has that modern decor with black and white pictures to give it a contemporary feel. The are alot of earth tones to suggest a feeling of warmth. Now how much warmth you get depends on the customer service. I could tell by the tight lipped smile on the cashier's face I was being overzealous about the panini bread. Had I regressed to being an overbearing ,pretentious, wanna be food connoisseur?Was I acting like an ego maniac looking down her nose at this poor hard working schmo just trying to earn a decent living. I hope not. In their defense it was pretty early not yet 8 am
and there was that pesk lunch crowd to attend to later. There was also a brunette manager who was business like but approachable she even smiled at my corny joke.
If you go looking for this sandwich it doesn't exist on the menu. It's the contents of a veggie wrap
placed inside to a flaky, tender croissant which totally made up for the lack of panini bread. The egg was firm ,not mushy. The spinach gave it the right amount of crispyness I like, loved the color contrast and the musrooms gave it a subtle earthy note to it. I would definitely try to talk them into this again. If large groups of hungry,hurried business type folks don't bother you, then I would suggest coming back during lunch time they have a nice variety of soups as well.
