If the line of people stretching out the door isn’t a giveaway, you’ll realize Andrea isn’t an ordinary Italian deli as soon as you’re through the door. The small space in The Heights is filled with the aromas from hanging herbs, and fresh meats and mozzarella behind the counter. And the subs don’t disappoint. There are only five options - three with deli meats and two with tuna - and our favorite is the combo. The meats, fresh mozzarella, and crunchy, chewy bread are all in perfect proportion. It’s one of the best sandwiches anywhere around NYC.
