Readers have spoken, and the winner of Needham Patch’s first weekly Best Of Needham contest is … !
The restaurant, located at 882 Highland Ave., received 36 percent of the 95 votes cast in our “Best Sandwich” poll, with most of the remaining 60 votes spread out among several of Needham’s other great eateries.
1257 Highland Ave., came in second with 11 percent of the votes, while 315 Chestnut St., came in third, with 9 percent.
Though voters didn’t say which of Blue’s sandwiches was their favorite, restaurant owner Catherine Walkey shared her picks after hearing about Blue’s win.
“My favorite sandwich is the burger! Is that considered sandwich? [Judges say: It is.],” Walkey said. “The blackened salmon wrap with avocado is a customer favorite, or the open-faced steak sandwich with mustard butter on brioche with hand-cut fries. Both are only available during lunch.”
Walkey said she was “flattered” to have won “Best Sandwich” in Needham in Patch’s first Best Of Needham contest and was “truly humbled to be in the running with so many great restaurants in the area.”
“We love our customers at Blue and work hard to please them every day,” she said. “We enjoy seeing the little kids, the seniors and everyone in between enjoying our restaurant.”
