I'm a huge sandwich fan. Growing up in New York I had my fair share of great sandwiches from Italian and Jewish Delis. Pastrami on rye, corned beef, brisket, Italian combo, meatball, eggplant and chicken parm to name a few. College in New Orleans exposed me to 4 great years of killer po-boys.
Miami has been a different story. Italian or Jewish delis are scarce and hero/sub shops are almost non existent. But there are some exceptions and there are some great sandwiches out there. I've covered a lot of my favorites in THIS PRIOR POST.
This is an updated list with some new finds in the tri-county area over the past few months. All are highly recommended.
In no particular order are some must get sandwiches plus two classics.
