Sandwiches in Manhattan

I just read an article in the Times about 7 sandwiches to try.
Many of the places are not in Manhattan and my personal favorite from Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop, the spicy rizzak, was not there.
Any suggestions for great sandwiches in the city??? Has anyone had any on the Time's list??
croque monsieur at Petite Abeille, La Bonne Soupe... I need to explore this one more
Bread (Soho location)
Original Sandwich Shoppe
Pig's ass at Casellula
grilled cheddar sandwich at Freeman's
Pork buns at Momofuku
I think most would say the pastrami on Katz should be on the list--I haven't been yet.
My favorite at TOSS is the Rudy's fresh roasted turkey. Don't need to add anything. The herbal mayo is great, and you can ask for white, dark, or mix meat to your liking.
Love Lamazou, quality ingredients, and the roquefort egg salad is pretty special.
Pretty much EVERY sandwich at Num Pang is good. My favorites are the steak and the mackerel.

The uni panini mentioned in the intro at Tia Pol is orgasmic. I've been to Province but didn't have the fish. Some of the best sandwiches must include a banh mi from Saigon Bakery on Mott and a Pinocchio from Alidoro on Sullivan. Also, the bocadillos at Despana on Broome.
here's a quick list, just off the top of my head. all but two are in manhattan:
Italian Combo- Parisi Bakery
Chicken Parm- Manganaro
Roast Beef with fresh mozz & eggplant- Defonte’s of Brooklyn
Spicy shrimp parm- Catene (Brooklyn)
Pastrami- Ben’s Best (Queens. don't get me started on Katz's. i would rather go hungry than eat there)
Coconut Fried Fish- Petisco
Fatboy- Crosby Connection
198 Mott St, New York, NY 10012
The tiger shrimp po-boy from Kampuchea. Amazing pickled carrots and cilantro with a spicey mayo.
DeFonte's of Brooklyn opened a sammich shop on 3rd Ave and 21 St. I love the roast beef, fried eggplant and fresh mozzarella sammich au jus. "To die for" as they say
I've never had a bad sammich there.
