Sandwiches in Manhattan

misnatalie Apr 30, 2008 03:57 PM

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??

    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.

      The tiger shrimp po-boy from Kampuchea. Amazing pickled carrots and cilantro with a spicey mayo.

        Have to toss in the Super Heebster (their name) at Russ & Daughters.

          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
          Porchetta- Porchetta

          Parisi Bakery

            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.

              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.

                Any recommendations on sandwiches at Original Sandwich Shoppe? I walk by it often and have been tempted to go inside but have no idea if it is actually good or not. Thanks.

                  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.
