In honor of National Sandwich Day last year, French-Cuban bistro Chez Henri and grilled cheese food truck Roxy’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese faced off at Chez Henri with a three-course competitive feast (with Roxy’s winning the ultimate bragging rights). This year they’re at it again, but they’ve ratcheted the competition up a notch, with a third challenger: the Atomic Meatloaf Meltdown masters at All Star Sandwich Bar.

The event this year is taking place on November 3 at Chez Henri, and we’ve been told that the Cambridge restaurant is opening early (with seatings at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.) in order to accommodate as many sandwich fiends as possible. Reserve tickets here.

In the meantime, you can check out the full menu for the face-off (with duck corn dogs, Cuban sammies, and apple-pumpkin bread pudding) ahead.
