Everyone loves sandwiches. Why? Because you can do basically combine anything with bread and make it into an ingenious sandwich.
You see, when it comes to sandwiches, the more creative the better.
And that's what New York's sandwich shops are all about: bringing fresh, quirky combinations to the table that will forever keep your taste buds on their toes.
So here are 9 of the most scrumptious sandwiches you'll find in New York City. (And, of course, feel free to let us in on your favorites in the comments below!)
1. Peanut Butter and Co. (240 Sullivan Street)
You may have seen jars of Peanut Butter and Co. eponymous peanut butter on grocery store shelves, but if you want to experience great peanut butter sandwiches, you have to go directly to the source itself, right?
Peanut Butter and Co.'s sandwiches do some seriously weird but great things with peanut butter, things that beat thin layers of PB&J on wheat bread like you're used to.
For example, maple bacon peanut butter and triple decker peanut butter and jelly club sandwiches are available here, to name just a few of their many delicious options.
2. Banh Mi Saigon (198 Grand Street)
The banh mi becomes a classic wherever it is, and at Banh Mi Saigon, it is no different.
This banh mi is as traditional as they come, with pickled carrots, daikon, cucumbers, and cilantro, plus hot peppers-- and not forgetting that delightful toasted bread, of course.
You can even choose your protein from beef, chicken, or the classic pork. They also have a vegetarian option.
3. Paris Baguette (various NYC locations)
This quaint French bakery and cafe is known for its French style baguette sandwiches.
When you pick one up, you'll be lifted off your feet into a whirlwind adventure back to the City of Light itself.
Come here for classic, hearty Italian sandwiches loaded with Prosciutto di Parma, or grilled marinated eggplant, or covered in red sauce like in the chicken parm.
Trust us, Italian flavor promises to be big here. Like real big.
Okay, maybe not literally, but that's what your taste buds will tell you. You can get a ham and cheese croissant sandwich for brunch or a lovely smoked salmon sandwich.
Bottom line is, you'll feel elated no matter what you get.
4. Sandwich House (17 Ann Street)
