Two Entries in the Encyclopedia of Sandwiches


Esquire – the magazine that inexplicably called the Friendly Lounge one of the best bars in America (though they redeemed themselves by also including Southwark) – put together an “Encyclopedia of Sandwiches” in their March issue and two Philly sandwiches made the cut: the roast pork with provolone from John’s Roast Pork and the chicken cutlet from Shank’s & Evelyn’s.Francine Maroukian, who made the picks, is a Philadelphian (and a great and prolific food writer) so we can’t argue with her cred.

Any other sandwiches that you might have included, should Esquire have asked you to pick?
