Gothic Landscaping has it made. While our oppressive summer temperatures aren’t the most accommodating for outdoor laborers, these particular folks happen to be working across the street from some of the Valley’s best sandwiches, served up at the newly opened Cured & Whey.

Actually a storefront for Michael Stamm’s MGP Specialty Food distributor in an industrial park near Post and Valley View, Cured offers a concise menu of deli fare, crafted using MGP’s high-end products. Consider it the casual brethren of the gone-before-its-time Artisanal Foods Café.

A casual spot with some picnic-table seating, Cured offers about a dozen sandwiches, at any time ranging from $9.50 to $11.50, alongside a few similarly priced salads. The dishes highlight artisanal ingredients like Hudson Valley duck ham on the duck Reuben and the Savini truffle sauce on the truffle honey grilled cheese. The former is a fun play on the classic Reuben, while the umami-laden latter combines Brie, buffalo mozzarella and acacia honey for a gloriously gooey mess.

Duck Reuben.

Travel the world with the French, which layers Parisian ham and Brie with green apple slices for added crunch. Or stick to the States with the surprisingly simple turkey, with asiago cheese, mayo and a forward dijon mustard.

Unless you work in the area, Cured is a bit off the beaten path, but it’s worth seeking out. I wonder if Gothic Landscaping might be in need of a staff writer …

Cured & Whey 6265 S. Valley View Blvd. #K, 702-429-3617. Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
