Sunday Brunch: Boxed Lunch

by Reuben Gutierrez

29 September 2013

Building a Building Minnie Mouse

The year: 1933. The place: the construction site of a new high-rise. The time of day: lunchtime.

The lunch: Bologna, Macaroni, and a slice of cherry pie. Well, that�s not exactly what happened for this particular meal. Mickey and Minnie�s black and white cartoon classic �Building a Building� (1933) constructed itself in my mind when I recently had a Turkey Sandwich meal at the new Board Walk Bakery. Speaking of sandwiches, the Board Walk features several served both cold and hot, thanks to a small oven.

In addition to tasty bakery treats, the new menu includes more sandwiches, salads, and quiche of the day.

During my days working the bakery counter, guests who ordered sandwiches received a plastic bag with plastic containers holding their sandwich and their side. Now, the renewed bakery delivers lunches to guests inside a classic white box holding their order in a smart, neat package.

Of all the things I enjoy about this new �box lunch� design, my favorite is the packaging itself. The sandwich comes wrapped in nice, brown paper, which gets held together by a bright red Board Walk logo sticker. The sandwich itself is delicious: layers and layers of hand-carved smoked turkey with lettuce, vine-ripened tomato on a multi-grain bread. The bakery had served this same turkey sandwich, which has always stood out as one of my favorites, for awhile, and it now comes in rather thematic packaging to the era.

The renewed bakery continues to impress me with each visit. This was my first time eating a meal here (and not just dessert) after the refurbishment. I already felt the place featured a great new design, but now the presentation served as a pleasant surprise. Guests now have the convenience of lunch-in-a-box, while also helping enhance the theming, setting, and time period in which the Board Walk resort resides.
