Anywhere in LA where can I get a nice Italian Chicken Parm hoagie like the ones I used to get back east?

    I think Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica has a decent one, but we call 'em grinders up in Massachusetts!

      Isn't a hoagie a sub, which is a grinder, which is a hero (haven't heard that last one in a while) except in NOLA where it's a po' boy? (unless it's cold-cuts on a ROUND roll which is a muffaletta!)

      Primavera on 7th downtown has a not-bad one for about $7 with a side salad, if you want a sit-down place...

      Johnnie's NY (several locations around Los Angeles) makes a pretty darn good one for about $8.

      It comes on Italian flatbread and it's gynormous...

        I like the one at Village Pizzeria on Larchmont Blvd. I think it comes with a small salad too.

          Rocco's on Wilshire, just west of Fairfax makes a great CP sub. Their meatball subs are also very good. (I'm from back east, from the Italian mecca of central NJ)

            Try The Coop at the intersection of National, Palms, and Exposition near Culver City

              Scooty, thanks, it's always great to get a recommendation for a "new" place (i.e. one not already well known around here)--what else do recommend at The Coop?

              Had Rocco's -- average.

              I can't stress how important it is for chicken parm lovers to go to Bay Cities. The bread is redunkulous and the chicken is awesome. And the best part is that you can order at the hot counter and skip the 30 minute line.

                Victor Jr's across from Sony Pictures Studios. Probably 1/2 mile from the Coop. It can't hurt to have multiple Chicken Parm options

                  Victor Jr's is fantastic, especially the eggplant parm. Service can be spotty, especially when it comes to delivery, but the food is top notch.

                  looking forward to checking out Rocco's, it's in my hood.

                  Mickey's Deli in Hermosa Beach serves up a very good chicken parm.
