Connecticut grinders Tue, 09/3/13 6:19 AM (permalink)
One thing I didn't really know about CT before moving here is how it is a sandwich paradise.
Chicken cutlets, eggplant, sausage, Italian cold cuts, meatballs, and shaved steak seem to be the mainstays, along with more ordinary deli meats; the older-school-looking places also offer a "pepper and egg" variety, which is entirely new to me, and even veal cutlet! Pulled pork was not something I expected to see given the relative dearth of good BBQ here.
Chicken parm grinder from Zerio's in Cromwell:

Mortadella grinder from Nardelli's in Cromwell.  Trust me, there is far more meat in the sandwich than my crappy picture indicates.  I'm working my way through their whole menu:

Look at this nonsense. All of those places are within a few minutes' drive, and sport similar Italian-leaning menus. In KC, if I wanted a chicken parmesan sandwich, my closest options were Subway or Quizno's. Here I have enough places with which to start a freaking blog on that one sandwich, if I wanted.
