Great sandwiches, mostly takeout crowd on New Years Day and that was a good thing because seating is minimal. Wishniak cherry soda on tap went well with Zawzeech sausage sandwich, the local folks had ordered Paesano sandwiches-brisket and eggs and that looked good too. Very...More

Encouraged by reports (including the recommendation from Anthony Bourdain's The Layover) we skipped the Pat/Geno's cheese steak showdown for this little sandwich shop abutting the Italian Market.
