Italian hoagies

Hinterlander Nov 22, 2008 10:19 PM

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?

    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.

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

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

        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.

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

                      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.

                    agree with parisi and faicco's - partial to faicco's on bleecker as you can get risotto balls as well. fantastic stuff.

                      oh man, the italian is great, but the roast pork hero at FAICCOS w/ fresh moz is the one that is going to be the death of me!
