OK so I just moved here from LA and want to eat a good Italian sandwich with great thick Italian bread. There is a place in Santa Monica called Bay Cities which I thought was fantastic and I loved the thick crusty bread. I figured when I moved here there would be an abundance of similar places but I haven't found any. Can anyone help me out?
There are probably at least a dozen places in NYC area where one can get a great sandwich, so if you have a geographic preference, let us know or post this question on the geographically appropriate board [Manhattan or Outer Boroughs or the TriState board (for nearby NJ)].
If you want a cold cut (cappy ham, mortadella, soppresatta, provolone, etc) italian hero with lettuce, tomato, onions, hot pepprpers oil and vinegar try Dominicks on 1st Ave and 60th Street.
For a good chicken parm herp try Sutton Pizza
for a great panini, try Inoteca in the LES. really good bread and creative ingredient combinations.
great and famous sandwiches can be had at Manganaro's on 9th Avenue and
about 37th Street....there are 2 stores next to each other...a think due to a family fallout.Try them both. The one on the right is more the old time Italian deli, the one on the left is line out the door fast service. Both are good. Manganaros is more than 50 years old. Check it out.
