Di Palo's Fine Foods, a mecca for Italian cooks, is a destination for sandwich eaters, too. Its porchetta sandwich is simple yet sensational, Westminstress reports: just freshly roasted pork on good ciabatta. "The pork was so juicy and flavorful from the herbs," she says, "and every bite had a bit of crispy crackling."
Meatball parmigiana lovers keep coming back to Frankies 17 Clinton Street Spuntino, whose standout sandwich comes on rosemary bread from Grandaisy Bakery. It's "mighty fine," promises Blumie.
