Thanks for this thread Ketteract.
I’ve really enjoyed reading it and drooling over your photos from page one.
I lived in Vermont as a kid, and these sandwiches were referred to as grinders, but I’ve not heard that term in other places I’ve lived. Whatever you call them, they can be fabulous, and you’re certainly showing us exemplary specimens. That Carbone’s roast beef makes me very sad Arby’s exists.
You’re very lucky to live in such a food in general and sandwich mecca.
Edited: changed your to you’re cuz I cain’t spell. [:D]
