Central Grocery Co.

The po’boy might be the most famous sandwich in New Orleans, but the muffuletta—a giant Italian sandwich that can easily feed four people—is a close second. You can find it across the city, but it was invented at Central Grocery in the French Quarter, and that’s where you should eat one. This Italian specialty shop looks like it’s from another century, which makes sense since it opened in 1906. There’s always a lunch crowd, but they’re constantly churning out muffulettas, so the line moves quick.

They’re currently under construction, but you can still get their muffalettas next door at Sidney’s Wine Cellar, and other spots around town. They also ship nationwide.
