    Iron Tomato in White Plains has fresh roast turkey - the whole bird and will make a sandwich with it - skin and all if you like. They also have a prime rib. Both items are fresh every day and they will do a sandwich with them.

      I second the Iron Tomato rec... when we were holiday shopping at the Apple Store in the Westchester Mall, we noticed all the employees had come back from a food run from Iron Tomato and wondered what all they hype was about. Out of curiousity, we stopped on our way home for a couple of sandwiches. The ham and the turkey panini were exceptional!

      Roosters Market on Gedney Way, White Plains, also has fresh turkey and other in-house made fillings, and they suggest interesting combinations, though you're not bound by them. Parking is easier than downtown. (Gedney Way is where Sam's and the new Emma's are.)

        nbermas, I am not finding the name of the place, but there is apparently a phenomenal Cuban sandwich in Pelham Manor. I bet someone else here knows the name.

          Here's the report, from the estimable Pat Hammond: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/570411 The place is called the Bakery at Four Corners (but comes up in Google as PJB Baking Co). I've yet to go, but it's high on my list.

            It's an excellent sandwich - I highly recommend it - I was still thinking about it days later!

              Thanks, this time I will write it where I can find it.

              I had a Cuban sandwich in Portchester years and years ago, on a recommendation from a friend who escaped Castro's Cuba decades ago, and I wish I could remember where she sent me. I still remember the diagonal cut and the pickles, and how good that sandwich was.

                You may have to ask them to cut it on the diagonal for you - when I asked my Dominican husband about it, he said they should definitely be cut on the diagonal!

              I haven't had the Cuban there but they make some very nice wraps too. I used to go there when my son was in a nearby pre-school. Some wraps were just ok but some were really very good. My usual was a Tuna / Jalapeno / (and Havarti if memory serves correctly) wrap.. it's on the everyday menu.

              The people at the deli and bakery were always really sweet as well but that was at least in part because I would always show up with an adorable 4-5 year old.

                I think I heard that they are under new ownership. People were very nice as well, though.

          If you are looking for some really good sandwiches in the New Canaan, jfood recommends Rosies in downtown New Canaan.

          Here's the link

            Hi there,

            Just a word of warning about Rosie's...although the food is undeniably fresh and appears to be extremely clean, it takes FOREVER to get your order and the prices are insanely expensive. This past month I ordered a Breakfast Burrito and some French Toast to go. Went up the street to Duncan Donuts for coffee, then around the corner to McKenzie's for the paper. Took about 10 mins. Back to Rosie's where I waited another 10 mins before my burrito appeared. Was told that the French Toast is coming. Another 5 mins. Then the bill came. $20!!! For an egg roll-up and 2 thick slices of Challah French Toast!!!

            Got it home where the wife asked if I went to NYC for the food. My reply was no, but my wallet feels as though we did.

            But to jfood's point, they serve a great product, so if you have the time to kill and the cash to burn, give it a shot.

              Where is rosie's and are you getting caviar with your breakfast for that price?

                downtown new canaan next to elm street book store


                Breakfast entrees ar high single digits, so 2 times plus tax is close to $20. sandwiches range from $8-12 as well.

                it is a local favorite

            Lange's Deli (two locations: Scarsdale/Bronxville). They have some of the best sandwiches around. Their chicken cutlets are my favorite.
