Traditionally relegated to the bottom of Italian food menus, the humble panini spends its time never quite living up to the Napolitano pizzas and manicottis of the world. But thanks to Chef Jonny Giordani—the culinary brains behind Jonny's Panini—that's all about to change. At this love song to the grilled sandwich, Chef Jonny presses everything from anchovies and mozzarella to prosciutto and provolone between slices of fresh baked bread. The shop also peps up steps with a full-service espresso bar that serves specialty drinks made following generations-old family recipes. Better yet, the coffee beans are Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, and Organic certified.
