  1. Panera is one of my favorite places, but please, the judge is correct: a burrito ain’t a sandwich.

    How about those “wraps” that are so popular these days? Is a wrap a sandwich?

  2. Oh, the complicated issues we tackle here at PoliBlog!

    Well, I know it isn’t a burrito.

    I am going to say that a wrap is a wrap, not a sandwich.

    But then again, I am just a consumer and not a lawyer ;)

  3. I think it is going out on a limb to try to call a burrito a sandwich. If what they really wanted was no other fast food restaurants that’s what they should have gotten in their lease.

    And you are correct. Panera Rocks!

  5. Among them was Cambridge chef Chris Schlesinger, who said in an affidavit: “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.”

    Best use of an affidafit EVER.

  6. I love case law. I pray that someday, somewhere, for some reason, I am in an argument over whether or not a burrito is a sandwhiche.

    “Of course a burrito is a sandwhiche. What gave you the idea that it wasn’t?”

    “Well, the Massachussetts Superior Court actually ruled on this, and you’re wrong.”

    “Ha ha. Very funny.”

    “No, really… I’m serious.”

    Any chance this will be appealed to the US Supreme Court?

  7. Now I personally hold that a burrito is not a sandwich, but what about a quesadila? It is almost exactly like a panini only with a flour shell instead of bread. Maybe Panera went about the case all wrong.

  8. I thought about the quesadilla angle too. It does seem closer to a sandwich than a burrito. Still a bit of a stretch though, in my opinion.
