I wanted to get people's thoughts on the topic. My votes go to:
- Pinegrove Market and Deli
- French Pantry
French Pantry has been mentioned numerous times on the board, and deservedly so. My only hang-ups are:
(1) the wait (if you're not there at 11am on the dot, you better have some patience); and
(2) insufficient seating (there have been one or two times when I get my food and there's nowhere to sit - most of the time it works out though).
That said, those two hang-ups are completely outweighed by the quality of the food. Everything I've eaten there has been absolutely stellar.
Pinegrove definitely deserves to sit right along French Pantry in my opinion. The burger and cuban are both arguably the best in town. (The cuban is made with pulled roasted pork instead of sliced pork, and it makes all the difference.) Also, they have three or four "specialty" sandwiches which are not on the regular menu, but are on a laminated yellow piece of paper where you order. Make sure you check these out. To top it off, Pinegrove is also a butcher shop and sells dry-aged steaks which are incredible. I've had great reviews everytime I've bought steaks from there.
So, what other spots should be on the list?
