Interesting - that bread looks a lot like the Salerno's bread that I had - also noted as "not the freshest". I am in agreement with pnwchef - a good sandwich - grinder or not - bread is a critical component. I would disagree though, that CT knows how important a quality roll is; in my neck of the woods (north/central CT), there is a dearth of good bread - it's mostly soft white bread masquerading as a good grinder roll. I've yet to find the "perfect" grinder within a reasonable quick distance to my house - if I go down to Waterbury to some of the Italian delis, or up to Springfield to Frigo's it works, but I crave a more local neighborhood establishment that does a great sandwich.

You are correct about the bread--the bread used for grinders in the "shoreline" area is pedestrian--I wonder where or if Bill really had great grinder bread in CT?

Growing up in Connecticut I never heard of a sub shop. If you wanted a sub you went to any neighborhood Italian grocery store and they'd make one for you. The bread was always a standard loaf of Italian bread -- sort of pointy at each end, you know, like a submarine.
