Banh Mi Saigon has long been our go-to for a banh mi in the Chinatown/Little Italy area. The sandwich shop is located in the back of a jewelry store on Grand Street, so walk past the cases of necklaces to place your order. The sandwiches are fully reliable across the board, and great for people who want heat : when you ask for it hot, they hit you with jalapeños, not just an extra squirt of Sriracha.

Jeffrey’s Grocery in the West Village is one of the few restaurants in town we return to regularly. It is Perfect For pretty much everything.
2nd Ave Deli
When the original 2nd Ave Deli closed, lots of New Yorkers channeled some nostalgic rage. At the new Murray Hill location, the old school charm may be gone, but the matzoh ball soup and pastrami sandwich have remained pretty much untouched.
