You enter Panini & Co and are enveloped into an immediate state of confusion. Customers and staff are baffled as to what they should be doing.
There is no real panini menu (in plain sight--I found a menu tucked by the register as I was leaving), just a bunch of ingredients piled in front of the glass. For menu offerings, all I could see was a bunch of sandwiches piled on top of the counter with a description toothpick flag jammed in the sandwich. The countermen wait a couple seconds for you to get your bearings and then shout at you for your order. I ordered a P6: "breaded eggplant, fresh mozzarela, roasted peppers, arugula and lite tomato sauce." I got a burnt and smashed baguette with a bunch of tasteless items piled inside. This was such a mean sandwich. I feel that gross-greasy-fullness. I want a nap. I want to start over again.
The counter has registers on either end, yet customers are unsure as to where they should be paying. I figured it out and spent $6.44
Panini & Co is at 168 William Street.
