Food Network star calls Dayton sandwich ‘amazing’


A Food Network star took a bite out of a Dayton institution and probably didn’t even know it.

Luke Feerer, the owner of Hannah’s Bar and Restaurant  at 121 N. Ludlow St. in downtown Dayton, was handing out samples of his gourmet slow roasted pork and beef sandwiches following Brown’s show at the Schuster Center when Brown appeared to take photos with fans.

Feerer said he never actually thought he’d talk to Brown when he made the short trek  across the street from his business to the theater, but that’s exactly what happened.  

“He said, ‘’I hope you are not going to ask me to sign your sandwich,’” Feerer told this news organization.

Before he knew what was happening, Feerer said Brown was munching on Hannah’s sandwiches. 

“He said ‘that’s amazing,’” Feerer said proudly.  

Hannah’s opened June 3 at the former site of J-Alans bar in Talbott Tower. 

The business specializes in customized sandwiches with either slow roasted beef, slow roasted pork or chicken.
Sandwiches are $8 to $10 and come with chips and a choice of condiments and toppings. 

Feerer said the meats come from Dot’s Market, an iconic store that opened on Patterson Road in 1951 as a butchery.
