Italian hoagies

I'm looking for the classic Italian hoagie/sub, loaded with spicy meats, cheese, vegetables and some sort of dressing. A big sandwich with a big taste is what I want. Who has the best?

  1. In Manhattan- Patrissy's Bakery- Kenmare Street
    In Astoria- Sandwich King

    Both are sinful and you will have to go to confession.

      Just a quick correction here on spelling and location so you do not miss it - Parisi on Mott between Kenmare and Spring. Yes Parisi sandwiches are absolutely incredible. They also make there own roast peppers so be sure to ask for them on your hoagie. I am a Philly transplant to NYC here so I know how hoagie translates to hero.

      1. re: dwaves

        Isn't Crosby Connection now located in the Parisi Bakery on Elizabeth St?


    2. Second Parisi's. Also, try Faicco's on Bleecker.

      1. Manganaro's Hero Boy on 9th avenue in the upper 30's.
        Alidoro on Sullivan between Spring and Prince.
        If you are willing to trave, to Brooklyn, i'd hit up the best there is to offer...A&S

          a&s is long gone, but there would be lots of other Brooklyn recs if asked on the OB board.

              should have location...

              Second Alidoro, but would suggest skipping both of the Manganaro's joints. Best I found in Manhattan was the Italian combo at Salumeria Biellese.

            3. Manhattan-Alidoro

                  Hoboken - Vito's (i'll take Vito's over Mikes ANY day)

                  also Ed Levine likes salumeria Biellese...looks great never been...

                      Just did the Salumeria Biellese hero-cappy, genoa, sopressata, provolone, roast peppers. Levine's right-the bread was ordinary. There must have been about 2 lbs of meat and cheese. Very good but the "meld factor" as I've coined it, was missing. Comparable to Faicco's but I still think Alidoro's (fka Melampo) Pinocchio (fresh mozz, sopressata, proscuitto, tapenade, peppers on a sfilatino bread) reigns supreme in the city.
