Scovie’s Bordeaux Panini
By Jillian Manning | March 19, 2022
Scovie’s Gourmet in Charlevoix has one of northern Michigan’s most mouthwatering lunch menus. With more than 40 options between their salads, burgers, wraps, paninis, and deli sandwiches, you could eat something new every day for the rest of March and all of April. But, if you’re going to try just one dish, we recommend going with the Bordeaux. This deceptively simple sandwich—turkey, brie, and caramelized red wine onions—is crisped to perfection, transporting you to a French café with the first bite. The brie is warm and perfectly creamy, and the onions add just the right amount of tangy snap in contrast. Trust us—this is a recipe you’re going to memorize and make at home again and again (though you never can beat the real thing). Ordering the full sandwich ($9.75) is well worth it, though you can’t go wrong with a half-sandwich, half-soup-du-jour combo ($10). Enjoy yours at 111 Bridge Street, Charlevoix. scovies.com.
