Urgent - good subs enroute Milford, ct to Bronx zoo

We r headed to Bronx zoo tomorrow from Milford, ct. Will be getting dinner on Arthur ave after the zoo but does anyone have a great place ez off/on highway to get subs for eating at zoo? Needs to be open early enough that we can pick up around 10-ish and eat around 11:30--thinking nice Italian sandwiches that will hold up. I know gaetano's in Stratford but was thinking lower Fairfield county before you get off on 287.

  1. But Gaetano's is SO EXCELLENT! You sure? :) Love that place.

    1. +1 on Gaetano's, and we have also really enjoyed the subs we have gotten from DiBella's on the Post Rd in Milford- in the former Krispy Kreme location.

      1. Art's Deli in Westport for Italian Subs...the best around, not super ez off/on the highway, but about a mile or so off Exit 17. Definitely worth it if you are looking for a great italian sub...

          Love Art's but parking can be a pain, and it will be a little bit of a roundabout to get back to the highway- yes, its only a mile or 2, but 10 or more minutes...

            Yes, which is why I said it wasn't ez on/off...but I think it's all moot at this point anyway since they were looking for this morning....hopefully they found some good food!

        2. Ended up at Cosmo & Alex Pisano Bros in Mamaroneck, NY. It was a perfect place to hop off highway and get back on to get to zoo. And awesome Italian bakery next door too. Locals said we chose well.
