I thought the article was a little dissapointing, only because I pretty much knew all the places he mentioned. Usually when Levine (one of my favorite food writers) does an article for the Times, he finds some previously unknown gems. For example last year when he did hero sandwiches there were several places I had never heard of. Over the past year I've tried 3 or 4 of them, and they were all great. With the Hot Dog article, I didn't add anything to my "to Do" list. I learn much more from reading this Forum. --Ken

I guess you usually don't see a topic start off with a quote; but I have to thank ken8083 for getting me started on this quest. In the hot dog forum ken referred to the sandwich places he discovered because of articles by Ed Levine. I had missed the New York Times articles by Ed on the heroes of New York. I found the two following links and found them enlightening.

Thanks again ken8083.

    Last week I was able to get to Lioni's as mentioned by Ed in the above articles. They have over 125 sandwiches on the menu. Confused and dazed, I just ordered a number 1. It was a great lunch, well worth the trip. You can see the menu here.

    I got even better sandwich yesterday at the Corona Heights Pork Store. That was a work of art but a very different place. No menu at all, it's just 'What do you want?' Ask for the Italian combo or for one of their hot heroes. You need to have time; it took about 20 minutes to assemble the 3 heroes I ordered. We sat in the park (complete with bocce court)across the street and had our lunch. Finish it off at the Lemon Ice King of Corona that's right there.

      I'm stuck craving the Leo at Lioni's... Every time I go. They also make literally the best pesto spread I have ever tasted- It's got all of these different cheeses in it- amazing!
