The Best Sandwiches in New York City

Sandwiches come in all sorts of shapes, flavors and styles. There is seemingly no limit to their variations. They are not only versatile, they are very convenient. New York City is home to a number of great sandwiches so join us on our journey to find the best, most mouthwatering sandwiches in New York City!

The Porky Melt from Pork Slope – 247 5th Ave, Brooklyn
It has been no secret since Pork Slope opened in Park Slope that a pork sausage patty packed with flavor + mustard + marble rye bread = the perfect sandwich and a great late night snack. A bite of this sandwich is sure to put a smile on your face. It is really that good.

Creekstone Farms Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich from Blue Smoke – 116 E 27th St & Other Locations
The star of the Creekstone Farms Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich from Blue Smoke is of course the brisket itself. It is incredibly juicy and tender. It is served on a brioche bun and it is great with some of their awesome sesame slaw on the side.

The Dennis from Parisi Bakery – 198 Mott St
The Dennis is a sandwich loaded with chicken cutlets, prosciutto, mozzarella and basil. Basically it is the best of Italian cuisine between two slices of bread. The lines at Parisi Bakery can get long especially during the lunch rush but trust us it is well worth it.

AB&J from The Butcher’s Daughter – 19 Kenmare St
The AB&J is sort of a play on the classic PB&J. The AB&J uses raw almond butter instead of peanut butter, sliced bananas & grapes as the jelly of the sandwich and it is all served on a 7-grain toast. It is a healthy and tasty meal.

Bánh Mì from Saigon Vietnamese Sandwich – 369 Broome Street
There are a lot of a Bánh Mì (Vietnamese sandwiches) shops in New York City but you can got some of the best Bánh Mì here at Saigon Vietnamese Sandwiches. Number one, the house special, is probably the golden standard. It is packed with Vietnamese cold cuts and sweet BBQ pork along with the usual mixed vegetables and herbs. It is yummy, filling and best of all cheap.

Rueben on Toasted Rye Bread from Manor Delicatessen – 9412 Jamaica Ave, Queens
Over at Manor Delicatessen they make a really (and we stress really) good Rueben sandwich. It starts off with some of their hot corned beef brisket and it is partnered with some Swiss cheese melted on top, some sauerkraut and of course some Russian dressing. It is a classic, it is simple and it is delicious.

Honorable mentions also go out to the lobster rolls from Luke’s Lobster (93 E 7th St & other locations), the pastrami sandwiches from Katz’s Deli (205 E Houston St) and the porchetta sandwiches from Porchetta (110 E 7th St).
