About Mason Hereford

Chef Mason Hereford opened Turkey and the Wolf in the Irish Channel in July 2016. Hereford was chef de cuisine at Coquette and worked at some renowned restaurants around the country before returning to New Orleans to open the sandwich shop. He takes a refined approach to casual fare in decor highlighted by retro and kitschy accents. The sandwich shop was included in Food & Wine magazine's 2017 list of the 10 best new restaurants in the country.

Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Bologna sandwich
Bologna sandwich
$, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Sandwiches, Lower Garden
"This sandwich is the best version of a sandwich that is so nostalgic that most of us made as kids. Fried bologna, American cheese, mayo, hot mustard, shredded lettuce, and potato chips... on white bread"
Collard Greens Melt
$, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Sandwiches, Lower Garden
"First off I’m not vegetarian and I’m not really a fan of cooked collards... that said this sandwich is amazing. Rye bread, cooked collards, slaw, Russian dressing. Hearty and flavorful that you won’t regret this choice, even as a meat eater."
