        ive never ordered a chicken parm there, but DeFonte's make my favorite sandwiches in that style. If i could tear myself away from the steak pizzaolo, firehouse special w pork loin and rabe, nickys special (cold cuts) or the pepper and egg, maybe id try it out and let you know how the chicken parm is.

            Indeed it does, and a good one at that. When I last had it months ago it was made with dark meat. I don't know if that is the regular method or just what they did that time.

          Parm and DeFonte's both look pretty good to me via their websites. Any others?

            Don't underestimate SB. Parm has good food, and is very chi-chi right now, but SB has been making CP for discerning cops, conductors and other gluttons for decades, and is NYC's leading salumeria too. A large CP at SB is $7.75, while a noticeably daintier rendition from Parm is a trendy $12.

              And that's fine if you value quantity over quality. And not sure what you mean by chi chi but Parm is about as laid back as it gets. Just curious, have you been?

                I've been to both and prefer SB's chicken parm. It's a food that I don't think is improved by more technique. Saratoga Club is nice, though.

                  Yes, I've been to Parm. Chi chi means chic. And SB is an epic sandwich place.

                You guys mention "SB" - what does SB stand for?? Salumeria Biellese?

                      If you're interested in salumi, the range of stuff they make there is awesome. And there's a fancier sit-down restaurant attached.
