    "Since I can't eat my sandwiches on freshly baked Parisian baguettes, I have moved on to the next best option: the Tiny's Giant semolina hero and whatever happens to come on it. The curried chicken salad is a particularly tasty "dressing."”

    "Love the Porchetta sandwich at Porchetta in the East Village. It’s super simple — just the pork, which has been slow roasted with spices, and a ciabatta roll. But, they put some of the crispy skin bits on it." - Justin Sedor, wellness assistant

    Sips and Bites is the best place for sandwiches. My picks: Excelsior if you like meat, Mama Wanda for vegetarians.

    It was the first non-American sandwich I ever had when I moved to New York, and the combo of fresh herbs, fatty pork, and the perfect roll (with a kick of heat) still makes it my top sandwich in the city.

    If I'm not up for the trek to Brooklyn's Pies 'n' Thighs, I'll head over to Back Forty in the East Village for some good ol' chicken and waffles.
