Madison sandwich shop for catering a party?
OK -- I'm hosting an outdoor birthday party for 50 or so grownups and toddlers and need to get a whole bunch of sandwich or sub platters. Nice side dishes (pasta salad, roasted or raw veggies, etc.) would be good, too. This doesn't have to be gourmet -- it's more important that a wide cross-section of adults and small children (including vegetarians) will find something they like to eat. But it should be as yummy as possible. Any idea where I should go for this? One friend recommended Milio's.
Milio's is certainly decent and cost-effective (and identical to Jimmy John's, pretty much.) But you won't find sides there. Some more ideas:
http://www.artamos.com/ - Artamos, near west side organic butcher.
http://www.frabonisdeli.com/ - Fraboni's, central (Greenbush neighborhood) institution.
http://www.ginosmadison.com/ - Gino's, west and State St., more Italian classics.
http://www.rubymarie.com/lakeview.htm - Lakeview (downtown) - they do a great individual lunch, not sure about catering.
