Slideshow: First Look: Parm, New Sandwich Shop from Torrisi Italian Specialties

Saratoga Club ($12)
Saratoga Club ($12)
A triple-decker sandwich with straightforward chicken salad, candied bacon, and crisp potato chips tucked between three pieces of toast. (You can't get anything this tasty in Saratoga.)
Calamari ($12)
Calamari ($12)
Delicate and crisply fried, with the just the lightest coating possible.
Pizza Knots ($5)
Pizza Knots ($5)
Salty fried pizza dough with a scattering of herbs.
Garlic Bread ($5)
Garlic Bread ($5)
Taken directly from the old Torrisi menu. Order it "deluxe" for an extra $2 and get a little dish of fresh ricotta cheese and tomato sauce for dipping.
Ricotta for the Garlic Bread ($2)
Ricotta for the Garlic Bread ($2)
Fresh ricotta, olive oil, a rich, thick tomato sauce, and a few basil leaves—what every piece of garlic bread could use.
Cauliflower ($5)
Cauliflower ($5)
An assortment of vegetables are available—these caramelized florets tossed in bread crumbs are one of our favorites from the old Torrisi.
Baked Clams ($10)
Baked Clams ($10)
Made with freshly shucked clams, sesame stick breadcrumbs, and butter, and then shoved under a broiler to crisp the butter and bread crumb mixture, these clams actually taste like fresh clams instead of rubbery pre-shucked crap. What a concept.
Meatball Parm ($8)
Meatball Parm ($8)
Carbone and Torrisi perfected this sandwich at their Yankee Stadium branch. The tender meatball starts with milk-soaked bread to retain moisture, plus a blend of pork sausage, veal, and beef.

A look inside the meatball parm. Notice the lovely fresh housemade mozzarella blanketing the single burger-sized meatball.
Ice Cream Cake ($8)
Ice Cream Cake ($8)
It looks like the old Carvel classic, but housemade ice cream (including a particularly flavorful pistachio) elevates this retro dessert. It looks silly, but man, is it good.
Jelly Zeppole ($6)
Jelly Zeppole ($6)
Fried to order, light, and dusted in sugar, these zeppole go way beyond the NYC street fair version.
