The 3800 to 4000 blocks of Richmond are something of a sandwich row. You have Which 'Wich (3815 Richmond), Quizno's (3837 Richmond) and Schlotsky's (4001 Richmond), but my hands-down favorite is one you might actually miss. I know I did until recently, thinking that it was only for take-out and delivery.

My favorite sandwich is The Italian, supplemented with lettuce, tomato, Dijon mustard and chiles Jalapenos. However, making your own is the default here. Pick a bread, a meat, some toppings and get it toasted. Bonus: There’s always a copy of The Wall Street Journal to read while you're having lunch.
Food geek trivia: Bread flour is about 80 percent starch, and some of this will revert to sugar chains during fermentation of the dough. Toasting the bread causes a caramelization of the sugars (and starches), resulting in a tasty crunch and slightly smoky flavor. – Jay Francis
