2000 Best Sandwich, Gourmet

Parish Cafe

It’s hard to compete with a sandwich joint that’s tapping into the culinary genius of just about every megachef in Boston. Among the delicacies on the roster of almost two dozen sandwiches: Chris Schlesinger’s smoked ham and cheese with mango chutney, Lydia Shire’s lobster salad sandwich, and Michael Shlow’s rare sirloin with caramelized onions and horseradish cream. The only real problem here is figuring out which one to order.
