Not gonna lie, we had no idea we were gonna like RegionAle this much. We thought they were just another sandwich joint, but we were wrong; so, so, SO very wrong. Chef/owner Kevin Curley doesn’t play around, and his vast experience is reflected in the quality of his food.
“I’ve been working in kitchens since I was 16 and have been in love with the vicissitudes of the culinary experience ever since. I, inexplicably, have always known that I wanted to be a chef and operate restaurants.” To tell you guys more about his background, he attended the Culinary Institute of America, studied Hotel Administration at Cornell, AND worked under chef Cindy Wolf at Charleston.
“[Cindy Wolf] is inarguably the best chef in the Mid-Atlantic region, and I learned a full lifetime of skills from my time there…before opening the first RegionAle location in 2016.”
Located at 2400 Boston St in Canton, they’re currently open for indoor and outdoor dining from 11-8PM daily. “My goal from the start was to put as much passion into making and sharing sandwiches that may not be readily available elsewhere. We feature sandwiches that are regionally famous from all across the country. We work with local bakers, use local produce whenever possible, and make as much as we can from scratch.”
With everything from Philly cheesesteaks to cubanos, expect delicious food for affordable prices. Their entire menu’s under $12 so both your tummy and wallet will leave happy and satisfied.
Their three best selling sandwiches are the Philly Cheesesteak, Nashville Hot Chicken and the California Chicken Club. We love their Nashville Hot Chicken, but their New York Italian Hero is a banger as well. The former’s served on a potato bun with hot sauce, arugula, pickles, and garlic aioli, while the latter’s prosciutto, capicola, salami, fresh mozz, arugula, onion, tomato, fresh basil and red wine vinaigrette on ciabatta.
Can’t choose between the two? Both are equally amazing, but if we HAD to pick, we’d go with their chicken sammie. It was easily one of the best chicken sandwiches we’ve ever had in Maryland.
The chicken was juicy yet crispy as can be. The hot sauce was spicy but not a crazy burn-your-mouth kind of hot. The pickles added to the sandwich’s crunch, and the garlic aioli added dimension to the already flavorful handheld.
Enjoy it with an order of their house-made chips for the perfect lunch! Available flavors include salt and pepper, old bay, salt and vinegar and sweet potato.
Prefer a different side? Their broccoli shred’s fantastic! It’s tossed in a lemon vinaigrette with pepper flakes and parmesan. This was straight up addicting!
They use copious amounts of cheese so it’s probably not as healthy as you’d imagine, at least from the damn, but it’s damn good, and we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll enjoy it whether you like broccoli or not.
Prefer greens for your meal? They offer 3 different kinds: mixed greens, crunchy kale salad and baby arugula. We got one to share, and it tasted like summer. Made with fresh strawberries, goat cheese, onions, and almonds, their baby arugula was perfection! Think fresh greens accompanied by two sides of their red wine vinaigrette. Simple and beautiful.
For those of you looking to indulge at home, they offer delivery via Doordash and Grubhub. If you prefer pickup, give them a call at (667) 210-2780! And FYI, they also have another location in Ellicott City so if that’s closer, by all means. Until next time, Nomsters! Eat all the things.
