To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of artisan sandwiches, salads, and more at All About the Bread on Melrose Avenue.
Small batches of fresh, well-crusted bread baked every 30 minutes surround tender cuts of deli meats and fresh veggies in each handcrafted, handheld creation at All About the Bread. A devoted mob of capocollo, mortadella, prosciutto di parma, fresh ham, genoa salami, and provolone cheese mobilizes the Godfather ($6.50–$8.50), and the Caprese sandwich dons a well-adjusted assemblage of heirloom and sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella ($6.50–$8.50). Like sousaphone solos, the meatball sub brings the best part of a familiar favorite to the foreground, smothering its meaty pasta refugees in marinara, melted provolone, and a smattering of Parmesan ($6.50–$8.50).
Or feel free to ditch bread for the bowl with salads such as the Boccacini, which piques the tongue with the light flavor of cherry tomatoes, boccacini cheese, basil, and olive oil ($5.50 for a pint). Meanwhile, several homemade giardiniera-pepper blends can add zest to any platter and a colorful muse for sudden monologues.

- From the guy behind coffee-driven Larchmont Bungalow cafe, All About The Bread's a classic-looking, snug deli w/ white walls, a tiled floor, and just a couple of tables, that's dedicated almost entirely to sandwiches, each thickly-stuffed with deli meats, and all on bread that's soft-on-the-inside and hard-on-the-outside -- like an edible Gerard Butler. – Thrillist
