Paesano's Philly Style
Sure, Paesano’s is just a sandwich shop, but that’s like saying Tom Hanks “just does a little acting.” One of Philly’s iconic sandwicheries, the new location in the Italian Market serves gigantic meals on rolls, along with a few antipasti and pasta dishes. There’s no wrong order here, but it’s the hot sandwiches—like the Paesano, with juicy beef brisket, horseradish mayo, sharp provolone, and a fried egg, and the Arista, which is their take on a roast pork sandwich, that has us dancing in our seats to the Frank Sinatra soundtrack. It’s a popular spot for carry out, but there’s plenty of comfortable seating and vintage photos to enjoy if you eat in.
