Someone once told me, “It’s tough to screw up a sandwich.” But I disagree. A sandwich, one of the most basic of the Moody Food Groups, is a work of art like any complex recipe in a high end restaurant. It can be too big, too small, too overwhelming, too flimsy, too much and not enough. Here are some delis I return to on a regular basis.

The Spicy Pickle is a wonderfully creative sandwich and Panini restaurant that adds in some wonderful soups to make the perfect lunch. You’ve gotta try the chicken noodle. I love that stuff. It’s a place that my family and I return to on a regular basis, just out of sheer wonderfulness.

Quiznos is a locally operated chain that has had some of the weirdest commercials in history but makes some of the best toasted sandwiches to be found. Always a favorite with me.
