I'd head south to Benanti's in Bayonne; while I don't always agree with the NJ Star Ledger Munchmobile, they nailed it when they raved about Benanti's.  You can get a hot or a sweet Italian combo, one is spicy hot, the other mild.  Both are great.

That is a good looking sub fattybomatty.
 
Is there a shorter version of the 18 incher?  If not, it's always good to have a second meal for later on.

Eruby, there is also a small and medium. I don't recommend the small because it is on a different type of bread that isn't as good. I got the large so I could have leftovers for lunch the next day.

I've been reading through this thread and laughing. I'm full blooded Italian. My 4 grandparents were born in Italy and I grew up in an Italian area of North Jersey. At gatherings, we often made our own "subs" from crusty Italian bread from an Italian bakery and quality coldcuts, arranged on a giant platter from the Italian deli down the street.Oh I remember that special pepperoni and provolone so sharp it crumbled at the touch!! Fixings were on the table: mustard(never heard of Mayo on coldcuts growing up) Olive oil, vinegar, oregona,salt,pepper, roasted red peppers,yellow peppers etc. All this talk: "you can't do this , you can't do that"..."it's not a real Italian sub." is silly. Really. Real Italian bread, real Genoa Salami etc.....you have an Italian sub.You want lettuce tomato,venegar etc...great. So go to these new fangled sub shops(None growing up in our Italian neighborhood in the mid 50's) and as long as they use quality bread and such...great.  What I most don't like about subs today is the cheap, almost wonder bread or super market-like bread used.The original post seemed to have the real thing. Great crusty Italian bread has a taste all its own and that with a real genoa salami and such is super!!!! Enjoy!!!

Thanks for the article.CCin NJ...Benanti's is obviously the real thing as I remember it. I agree, find a good Italian deli, and see if they make a sub with quality ingredients. Sub ways and the like are poor imitations of the real thing.

Last time I had an Italian sub like that I was in submarine school in Groton Ct (sigh). There was this mom and pop shop on Bank st. Near the railroad station. Can't get them here in Austin.

Having grown up in an Italian family in New England---and having spent time in nearly every region of the "lower 48" i have found that this applies.
 
Great Local Bakeries=great local sub shops--------------NO LOCAL Bakeries=Subway
--sadly,here in East Central Oklahoma--there are no local bakeries---however---at Lovera's Market and their conveinece store outlet -Kreb's Corner---Sam Lovera ships in some great loaves from New York--or Jersey! I am VERY greatfull for Kreb's--Oklahoma's Little Italy--and the Lovera family for carrying on a wonderful traditional Italian market and Butcher shop and deli! When i NEED  a fix for a REAL "Italian sub"--they are my salvation!

When I was in submarine school in New London, the only subs I had were in the geedunk (sp) on the base and they called them grinders.
That was circa 1962/64

Another great Italian sub is on the front page today!!!

Fiore's Roast Beef & Fresh Mozzarella!

Bruce said a mouthful...

"The warm, supple cheese felt like human flesh in the hand and on the tongue. It was dripping with moisture, a little salty on the surface from its hot bath, sweet and milky within"


Sweet fancy Moses...indeed!!

brisketboy...do you have an Italian deli in driving distance. Get some quality cold cuts,crusty Italian bread...and make your own.It would taste better than most places anyway.....fix it the way you like.good Olive oil, wine vinegar,tomato & lettuce.....That's Italian!!

I think we take some things for granted when we say "just stop at the bakery or Italian deli...for some" It's here. Not there.

When Scrumpiouschef started a thread...

Into the woods...woods?

with a gunny sack or pack...hmmm?

for some Poke Sallet....Poke wha?

or says something about barbecue...it's not the New Jersey version.We can't stop by to pick that up.

I've got pears, lamb, crab, vodka,, wine and beer.
But not many Italians and certainly no delis.
We were thinking of having Joerogo participate in a cultural exchange program, sort of like a foreign student exchange.
Whaddya think? 
Pittston gets a lamb and we get Joe. Fair trade?
Maybe just for the summer tourist season.

Leethebard, the very idea of an Italian deli or any deli for that matter makes me want to drool. Closest thing might be the cold cuts counter at Hole foods or Central market but as you said that will have to suffice. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thank you Michael. I guess I should get out of Georgetown more often. I'm probably one of those that would rather take an ass-whippin' than drive MoPac

Definitely tempted after reading this to get a big Italian sub/hero tomorrow night to celebrate the night before Passover starts (As you can tell, I'm a very observant Jew! .) I might even consider jumping on the Path train to try that place in Jersey City! Anyway, I had taken a picture of a recent Italian sub I ate and meant to post it, but forgot about it until reading this thread. This beauty came from 3 Alarm Deli in Astoria, NY. http://www.3alarmdeli.com/

Happy Passover and come on over!

Day 3 in a row for <<<Hoboken>>>

Falafel for dessert after subs? That is a cocktail-primer. Oh...maybe there will be a day 4...and maybe 5 or 6.
