Best of Boston

1997 Best Sandwich

Parish Cafe

This bistro doesn’t dub its sandwich selection “The Great Ones” for nothing. Some of the city’s best chefs have contributed recipes for lavishly layered concoctions sure to make your mouth water. Steer clear of the calzone, and instead sink your teeth into the Capital Grille’s Smoked Salmon on brioche, the Pudding Portobello with onion marmalade, or Norma’s Zuni Roll with cranberry chipotle. The latter ensures you’ll never look at a turkey sandwich the same way again.
