Mario’s Italian Deli & Market

Behold the triple-deck-er structure of Mario’s sub from the top down: toasted hoagie roll, tomato, shredded lettuce, onion, roasted peppers, more hoagie roll, Italian meats, and yet more hoagie roll. It’s awe inspiring. The extra layer of bread helps soak up the drips of mayo mixed with balsamic dressing (available on request). Fillings include everything from sopressata and imported mortadella with pistachios to liverwurst and garlic-roasted pork.
Best Sandwiches, February 2006
Saucy meatballs, regional salamis, and exotic hams make ordering a sandwich at Mario’s Italian deli & Market a challenge. But it’s the warm lamb sub that gets extra stars. Slowly roasted leg meat layered in a warm Italian roll is drizzled with garlic and rosemary scented pan jus, slathered with the house “secret sauce,” and topped with thin, molten slices of mozzarella.
