Sandwich Tour - best places

I found the "Best Sandwiches" post from 2006, but nothing recent. A few of us are meeting up in Manhattan for the weekend and want to do a sandwich tour. Here's what we have in mind so far:

Katz's - Reuben/Pastrami on Rye

Nem in Grand Central - Bahn Mi

Tabla’s Bread Bar - Lamb and Mashed Potato

Melampo - "Pinocchio" Sandwich

Eisenberg's - Tuna Salad

What am I missing? Any adds/drops from this list? Thanks for your help!

  1. Porchetta is fairly new and I love it. East Village.

    1. re: malibu

      De Fontes, Num Pang, Baoguette

    2. Stuffed pide from Ali Baba Turkish Cuisine

      1. Do bagel sandwiches count (Russ & Daughters)? Pork buns (Momofuku Milk Bar, etc.; Ippudo)? Falafel in a pita? Chicken or lamb in a pita? Panini?

        1. You absolutely need to do Banh Mi Saigon Bakery in Chinatown, imo the best sandwiches in nyc (I usually stick with #1)
          Defontes and Porchetta are too new for that list, but you could maybe check them out.
          Melampo is now called Alidoro, but I have heard it is still good.
          I have been dying to go to Despana in Soho, they use imported Spanish products and supposedly the sandwiches are superb.

          1. Would include Lamazou, Caracas Arepa Bar & 'Wichcraft.
