Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.

It's hard not to want to eat at a place that serves sandwiches with names like Kill Bill, Fins to the Left, and Back-2-Nam-a-Tron—even harder when they're this tasty. Cardiologists might want to avert their eyes from the Red's Dead, which combines bacon, soppressata, capicola, and asiago cheese, but everyone else should head straight to Bushwick and order it. A hefty portion of greens and tomatoes along with thinly sliced pork keep the sandwich lighter than all that meat would suggest, while banana peppers and a mustard-and-vinegar-glaze on the crunchy baguette give it a pleasing tang. And, speaking of names, "Deli and General Store" isn't an affectation: there's just a smattering of seats, but you can stock up on your essentials after chowing down.
