A Sandwich a Day: Chicken Parm at Faicco's

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

The Chicken Parm Hero from Faicco's ($10) is a beast of a sandwich. It starts with the classic sesame hogie and continues with the matrimony of Italian-American culture that lies within. Three to four filets juicy chicken cutlets are stuffed inside, making for a package that easily weighs in over a pound. There's more than enough to share, but that doesn't mean you have to! The fresh mozzarella is laced with a subtle sweetness that really hits its stride alongside the garlicky marinara. Take Robert Sietsema's advice and ask for extra sauce, either on your sandwich or on the side, and you're in for a soul-satisfying lunch.
