Six Foot Sub

goldbeab Jan 18, 2007 09:43 PM

Does anyone know of a bakery or bread shop that will make a six foot sub roll? All I need is just the roll, no meats or veggies. For the Patriots game this Sunday I'm planning on handcrafting a six foot party sub but I don't know where to get the bread. Anything to point me in the right direction would be helpful. Thanks!

Newton/Watertown would be preferable but I'm willing to travel.

      I never thought about Shaw's. I might try them tomorrow.

        Maria's Italian Cold Cuts in Somerville (Winter Hill) does an amazing 6 ft Italian....It is sensational

          Oops, jumped too quick on that....don't know if they sell just the roll but the Italian is still awesome.

            You will have to call around as its mostly a wholesale item. La Cascia's Bakery in Medford sells a four-foot sub, so might be able to sell that as bread alone. Other Somerville-oriented possibilities are Winter Hill Bakery, La Ronga, and maybe Piantedosi in Malden. There are other wholesale-only bakeries in Burlington, Woburn, and Charlestown, but all of these do wholesale and retail.

              Definitely give La Ronga a call, but call early.

                I think La Ronga has 5 foot, not 6 foot. But don't quote me on that.

              call Bob's in Medford and they just might sell you the roll only - the 6 footer is their specialty cold sandwich.

                In case someone is looking for another for this Sunday's (non-patriots) game, I did notice that Esposito's on 60 in Revere sells both braided and an egg-washed 6 foot sub roll. Its a bit pricey at $15, but its a bit fancier than others and you can buy your cold cuts at New Deal just around the corner. They require 24 hour notice.
