I should mention that the Italian was, in fact, good – I think it’s just that I’ve gotten into the habit of eating enormous, meat-laden grinders, and it’s affected my ability to appreciate something more balanced. I mean, veggies in “giant” grinders are often just an accent to the meat, but in regular-sized ones, they’re more important. I will definitely try the cooked salami on my next visit. (I actually haven’t had a cooked salami grinder anywhere yet. I was going to have one at Iuliano’s in Manchester, but they’ve closed up shop for good.)
I’m actually of the camp who doesn’t like overstuffed grinders..especially if they haven’t hollowed out some of the interior, so I enjoyed the photos. The cooked Salami sounds heavenly…..hope you get back there soon unless I beat you there on one of my trips to NE.
