Sunday Sandwich?

  • 3

Looking for suggestions on where to grab a great sandwich or sub today. Many of my usual go to places (LaGrassas, Al's State Street, J. Pace, Cheddars, Nellios) are closed on Sunday.

I am working from a Cambridge starting point, and willing to travel a bit. I will be over in the Chestnut Hill area later, so anything in that direction would be a bonus.

I am off Bob's lately. Not a fan of ASSBar. Darwins is just OK in my book and not what I am looking for. Hi Rise is a typical Sunday, go to and I am looking for something different.

Maybe Bottega Fiorentina in Brookline? All suggestions are apprecated.

  1. Maybe Baker's Best in Newton Highlands? I love their sandwiches.
    I think Bottega is also a good idea.

    1. Go to Russo's, get your shopping done, pick up a sandwich from the deli and then head out to that park that runs along the river on California Street for some al fresco dining on a day that's turning out to be considerably nicer than advertised!

        Russos is a great suggestion. I always forget how good their sandwiches are. I have maybe the best veggie wrap I have ever eaten from there recently. Unfortunatley we discussed going there do the shopping earlier, and my wife reminded me that I vowed never again on Sunday. I really don't have the patience for the crowd there at peak times now, and my feet can only take being run over by so many carts. I try to hit to hit it on week days, or first thing after opening on weekends.

        I made myself hungry writing the OP, so I didn't have much time to wait for replies. I eyed Ruben's on the way by, but I wanted both meat and cheese today. I ended up at Bottega, and am enjoying an execllent roast beef sub with everything. Nice rare RB, and all meat, cheese and veggies came fresh off the slicer. Not a bad value for $6.75. I forget how much I like their subs.
