Grinder / Hoagie / ROLLS

Looking for decent/authentic Grinder Rolls
Not Wonder Bread type, but one that will get crusty on the outside like a fresh Baguette when placed into a hot oven, then cut and filled with the true Italian Cold Cuts easely found in the olden days.
Give me Bread that can be proud to be called Italian.
And if not in Boston, name a 'Bakery' anywhere in New England. Any Address welcome, please.

  1. I recently got some nice long ciabatta rolls at Whole Foods. I think they were Iggy's. They weren't your classic sub rolls, but they were very good. Now that I'm thinking of it, I need to go and buy more.

    1. I like Russo's - 3 to a bag.

          Second the Pace recommendation. They have a store in Saugus as well as several in Boston.

        2. Antoine's Bakery in Nonantum has house-made sub rolls. And given that Nonantum is Italian enough that on some streets, the dividing line down the middle of the street is white, green and red (not kidding), I daresay they will satisfy your needs. And for your hot sub needs, don't forget Depasquale's Sausages is right down the block...
