OUR PICKS

1)   Star Provisions

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “Take me to Paris, and what do I want? Well, besides shoes? A ham, butter and cheese sandwich on a baquette, bought from a street vender. I can get a similance of this Francophile sammie at Star Provisions, with Parm and prosciutto and butter on one of the provender’s Parisian-style baquettes.”

I’m very picky about sandwiches and have tried many since moving here to Atlanta five years ago. Hands down the best place is the New Yorker Deli off Atlanta Road in Smyrna. The sandwiches are amazing and come with the best french fries in town!

Wright’s Gourmet in Dunwoody has the best sandwiches… Glenda’s Garden (veggie with everything really fresh), Rebel Reuben, Cuban (grilled) or BLT (best if you specify hot bacon). And they have great desserts to boot… YUM!

Best “SUB” sandwiches are Jersey Mike’s, Publix Subs, and Firehouse

how about something else?

Best CALZONES: Mellow Mushroom (Pepperoni, Beef, Feta Cheese w/Esparanza dressing and red sauce on the side)

Best PIZZA: Mellow Mushroom

Reccomend some other places for Calzones, Sandwiches, and Pizza, I’d love to try something different

Goldberg’s Deli, Publix, and My Friend’s Place. They all run second next to my mom’s chicken salad, though.

You should also try the Solstice Cafe in Grant Park. A little artsy, fartsy, Bohemian mix; but good sandwich.

Pat, I’m with you on the Eatzi’s… They were fantastic. A moment of silence and “pour a lil som out” for Eatzi’s… .Jason’s Deli and Publix’s have some pretty good sandwiches. And Chains, you’re the J@ck@zz… There are no restrictions here.. Johnny and Robert can list whoever they want.. Take your bourgeois nose in the air azz to a diff blog to comment on…

Yes, Publix, you snobs. But get Boar’s Head rather than the generic brand of meat. Pastries a Go Go in Decatur has a great Reuben.

I second the New York Deli. But, my favorite has to be the Shrimp Po-Boy at Star Provisions. Rather expensive for a sandwich, but Heaven on a roll.

Obviously this is one of Atlanta biggest shortcomings. There are no sandwich places in this town. There should be so many more for a city this big. For Publix and Jersey Mikes to do so well pretty much says it all. This is definately a niche in the market that a good entrepreneur should target.
Publix rolls are the key to their success…Its called a hard roll. Does anybody down here know what that is? How about a good deli? There arent many.
