Foodstuffs Legal Forum:
What's a Sandwich?
Post Your Opinion

Important legal issues in the world of foodstuffs coming out of Massachusetts, USA. Is a burrito a sandwich? That was the question debated in the courtroom as 2 competing restaurants argued their takes. The issue arose as a Mexican food restaurant seeked to lease space in a local shopping mall in Boston. This mall allready had a sandwich shop and their lease had a clause that disallowed any other sandwich shop from becoming a tenant of this shopping mall. Expert testimony was given by many including Cambridge Chef Chris Schlesinger who said: "I know of no chef or culinary historian who would call a burrito a sandwich. Indeed, the notion would be absurd to any credible chef or culinary historian.". The judge's decision came down to the tortilla v. bread argument and the dictionary definitions of both names.

Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke said in his written decision: "A sandwich is not commonly understood to include burritos, tacos and quesadillas, which are typically made with a single tortilla and stuffed with a choice filling of meat, rice, and beans".

Will there be an appeal? It is not known as of yet. We encourage readers to post their takes on this using the easy/no registration needed "comment" link below.

Was there punch and pie served during the sidebars?

I heard the burrito legal team used the Chewbacca defense. Pretty simple stuff here. Burrito is not a sandwich, ask the Earl of Sandwich.

I will agree with the ruling IF the current sandwich shop does not serve 'wraps' as that blurs the line between the two.

I think this should be argued in an International Court of Law. We need a worldwide standard on this.

Also, what the hell is a Hot Pocket called?

Mr. Grey said...

Proper definitions are vital the maintenance of foodstuffs appeciation. We cannot let the legal types blur the lines between "sandwiches" and "burritos". Are we men are are we animals?

SENET said...

Sir! My message is clear. Sandwiches are composed of hearty wheat bread, jalopeno cheese, lettuce, bell pepper, chips, mayo, salad dressing, onion, olives, cold cuts, and any other desired add-on.
