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