A lifetime of sandwiches

There are five things everyone needs to live: food, water, air, shelter and sandwiches. Some may argue that the wheel was man’s greatest invention, but the sandwich may just be the high point of civilization. It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread (and it would be greater than sliced bread if you didn’t need sliced bread to make a sandwich). Every month until the end of time, we highlight our favorite locally-made sandwiches.

 

 

grand-central-sandwich-42-web-nov-3-2016

42. Rockefeller
Roast beef, provolone cheese, horseradish sauce, lettuce, red onion and tomato on a cheddar roll – made fresh daily.

Grand Central uses Boar’s Head meats and cheeses in their sandwiches. All menu items are available at any time of day, so you could enjoy this sandwich for breakfast, as I did.

41. Smoked Turkey Melt
Melted pepper jack, avocado and tomato on rustic French bread. Comes with your choice of fries, sweet potato fries or green salad.

The pepper jack cheese gives this sandwich a kick. And just like cheese makes any food better, the avocado does the same to this sandwich.

40. Nino’s Special
Ham, cheese, salami, capicola, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a sub roll –  made fresh daily.

Nino’s is a family-owned Italian restaurant, and the owners greet customers as if they’re family. The Nino’s regular ’boli is one my favorites. Honestly, everything they make is awesome. But this feature is about sandwiches. Being such a fan of the place, and a regular for nearly 12 years, it was difficult to pick just one sandwich. I finally landed on my go-to, the Nino’s Special.

39. Italian Sandwich
Fresh, made-to-order baked bread, Romaine lettuce,
Roma tomatoes, provolone, pepperoni, salami, capicola and choice of dressing.

Since the roll is made of pizza dough, this sandwich eats more like a stromboli. It even
comes with marinara sauce and Italian dressing for dipping. You need to try this sandwich.

38. Braised Short Rib Sandwich
