My dad is in town (for the first time) from Colorado and he's only here until Sunday. He has his heart set on eating a great East Coast-style sandwich. (People from the West grow up with the impression that the East Coast is the land of sublimely good sandwiches.) He asked me what people eat out here: hoggies, grinders, subs, or what? I didn't know what to tell him. I've been here two years and have yet to come across any truly memorable sanwiches - except Katz's and 2nd Ave Deli and I already took him to 2nd Ave.
So, my question is: Where do I find these mythical sandwiches?
PS - And I'm not talking about any foofoo sandwiches. No fusion, fancy, Dean & Deluca-esq sandwiches. I want the down and dirty, drippy and over stuffed "Nu Yawk" version.
