Earl of Sandwich draws loyal subjects from Strip to Downtown Summerlin

Earl of Sandwich bills itself as serving the world‘€™s greatest hot sandwich. Come to its new location at Downtown Summerlin, and you‘ll see why.

Located at 2010 Festival Plaza Drive, Suite 180, the 919-square-foot shop has a small footprint, so counter space is minimal, with about only six chairs. But there is patio seating among the hedges.

The brand was named for Robert Earl, founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood, who hosts "Robert Earl‘s Be My Guest" on the Cooking Channel. Owners of new franchise are Rey and Leigh Robledo, longtime Las Vegans. Rey worked in room service at Planet Hollywood Resort on the Strip and was Earl‘s personal butler.

The hotel has a sandwich shop, and Rey said he had "probably eaten every sandwich on the menu 300 times."€ So, it was a no-brainer to become a franchisee. The Robledos said they wanted a location in a neighborhood setting and that Downtown Summerlin was looking for an up-and-coming, casual dining concept to add to its food offerings.

Service is fast. It takes only a minute and a half in the oven to toast the sandwiches, which start at $5.49. Everything is made fresh, and artisan bread is used.

There are 12 sandwiches, including the Original 1762 with roast beef and cheddar, chipotle chicken avocado, tuna melt with Swiss cheese, and the Full Montagu with roast beef, turkey and Swiss cheese. Other selections are Hawaiian BBQ, Italian, ham and Swiss, and the All American with turkey and cranberry sauce. There also are two meatless sandwiches: the Caprese, with mozzarella and roma tomatoes, and the veggie with feta cheese, cucumbers, red peppers, red onion, lettuce and roma tomatoes.

Not in the mood for a hot sandwich? There also are wraps, such as chicken Caesar, spicy tuna and Thai with chicken, salads and a daily soup, served by the bowl or cup.

Earl of Sandwich also offers a variety of breakfast sandwiches, fruit yogurt parfaits, bagels and muffins.

Hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, except Sunday, when it closes at 7 p.m. Call 702-750-2005 or visit earlofsandwichusa.com/nevada/downtown-summerlin.
