Best of Boston

2008 Best Sandwich

Hot Off the Press Café

That sandwiches are better toasted is a given—consider, for example, the unfailing success of the grilled cheese. This Central Square café understands the power of the press, turning otherwise competent sandwiches into the Southwestern Turkey Around. And the Ham on Swiss Around. And the Best…okay, you get the gist. The genius is in the kitchen’s liberal interpretation of what, exactly, is grillable. Check out the PB&J: It tastes like hot candy.
