When I did that survey, someone suggested that I canvass readers to find out the best of a given category: cup of coffee, chocolate-chip cookie, etc. The other day, after Ronak Parikh asked me on Twitter where to find the best deli sandwich in Tribeca, I thought the question was a good one to start with—the contenders didn’t strike me as immediately obvious.
Someone, I don’t recall who (Paul Bettany?), immediately tweeted Pane Panelle, the sandwich offshoot/new name of Stuzzicheria. And what came to my mind—although I had yet to try any—were the sandwiches on the lunch/brunch menu at Kutsher’s Tribeca. I wanted a photo of the pastrami one, so I went and had it for lunch. It was pretty damn good. If you’re only rarely going to eat meat, you might as well do it in style.
Enough about me: Where’s the best deli sandwich in the area?
