What's your favorite sandwich?
My everyday go-to is thinly sliced ham and gruyere with tomatoes on toasted rye, or a club. My indulgence is the Monte Cristo...I have itabout once a year and it's kind of gross but also great.
What's your fave? Peruse this list to jog your memory of sandwices past.

The sandwich chain Blimpie makes a sub called "Blimpie's Best". It's a delicious mix of Italian ham, salami, cappacola, prosciuttini, provolone cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onion, vinegar/oil and oregano. I get it with sweet peppers on it. To die for!
Sadly, the stores are disappearing - only 2 left in Brooklyn. Subway does not compare.

I used to like banana, peanut butter & honey - but too fattening now.
Good quality ham is a must, with sliced cheese (Norwegian Jarlsberg is good) and tomato and a smear of mayo.
I am currently on a roast tomato and avocado kick - blame Gwynnie, her avocado on toast recipe got me going ... I roast plum tomatoes for 45 minutes with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Moroccan harissa paste - gives them a terrific kick.

Subway is gross now, but in the 90s they offered a sandwich called the pizza sub: pepperoni and other basic pizza toppings with a tomato sauce on your choice of bread. It was amazing. Because I loved it, of course it was discontinued.

To me almost all the Subway sandwichs taste the same except for the meatball. All their cold cuts taste the same. Their cheese is pure plastic and their breads all taste the same no matter which one I pick and that might not be bad if they didn't all suck. Just a few years back they used to have the footlong (and they were a foot long in those days) on sale for 3 bucks. Now 5 bucks is the sale and it's not worth it.
I miss Blimpies. They had real hero bread, real cold cuts and real cheese.

I am a sandwich aficionado and expert sandwich maker so it's hard to pick one as my ultimate favorite. But if you made me prepare one sandwich, to grade me on, it would probably be proscuitto with provolone, mayo, romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion and cornichons on a crusty French baguette.

I like Monte Cristo sandwiches, too.
I have been loving pretzel buns since they started being offered a few years back but have had to limit them (damn they are high calorie and fattening!)
I am as surprised that anyone would eat at Subway as I am that they would eat at McDonald's.
And Subway is also like Jimmy John's for me - the whole why-would-you-pay-to-eat-shit-you-can-make-at-home category of fast food.

Out of the way? Unlike Marv's on Magnolia??? What's the heck's around there?
FWIW, you can hop on the Red Line at Noho and get off right at Langer's in 15-25 minutes, which BTW, is about 5 min west of Downtown. There's a reason why even a NY'er like Nora Ephron called Langer's pastrami the best in the country.
Umamicatessen is part of the Umami Burger empire, but mixed in with a kick-ass deli. It's downtown on Broadway near 9th - about a 10 min walk from the Pershing Square Metro Red Line stop. As with Langers, totally safe during the day, slightly dicey at night. Pricier than Langer's, but great.
