The sandwich artisans at Franklin Square Deli have been assembling fresh cut-to-order deli delights for more than 27 years. The shop adorns its slate of 14 vinegary, full-loaf Italian subs with such savory meat-and-cheese combos as corned beef and swiss ($4.50 for a 6") or prosciutto and muenster ($5.90 for a 6"). A roundup of hearty gourmet and bagel sandwiches satisfies stacking enthusiasts with options such as the Mid Town, piled with turkey breast ($7.15), or Carl's Favorite bagel, a hubris-rich collection of capocollo, provolone, onions, and cream cheese wedged between a toasted onion bagel ($6.10). Thirsty diners grease gullets with soft drinks (starting at $1.45) or bowls of homemade chili.
