On the advice of a coworker, today I checked out Carbone’s Market in Torrington. He recommended their roast beef after seeing my pics from Second Poquonock, claiming Carbone’s was superior.
It is. It blows Second Poquonock away.
The beef is thicker-cut, juicier, tastier, and more plentiful. And a sandwich with “everything” includes cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato, onions, roasted peppers, oil and vinegar dressing, and what appears to be some kind of Italian seasoning. I should have taken a pic from the side – there were tons of peppers.
It was the most delicious roast beef sandwich I’ve ever had. Absolutely worth the drive to Torrington.
They also have homemade chili, baked mac and cheese, a great selection of chips including Utz Onion ‘n’ Garlic (which I’d never seen in stores), and various shelves of grocery items. I foresee many, many trips to Carbone’s in my future.
