Like the Earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of deli fare at City Grocery in East Hill. Today's deal is not valid for grocery items.
City Grocery has been slaying hunger with a bevy of signature sandwiches and po' boys, featuring eye-catching stacks of Boar's Head meats and cheeses, for more than half a century. Sink incisors into the Boss Hog, which layers pulled barbecue pork and cheddar cheese onto french bread, forming culinary miniatures of Grand Canyon formations for touristy tongues to photograph ($5.25/half, $8.99/whole). Joey's Badda Bing sub serves up warm Venetian nostalgia to every taste bud, with fresh basil, capicola, salami, ham, mozzarella, veggies and italian dressing ($7.99/half, $9.99/whole). Soothe pre-sandwich tummy tremors with a bowl of roasted-red-pepper soup slathered in smoked gouda ($3.99/cup, $5.99/bowl) or display dominance in Mother Nature's food chain by devouring a chef salad ($6.99).
Break bread and sip sodas in the comforts of City Grocery's red-and-white checkered tablecloths and red carpet or carry delicacies out to tempt every nostril within sniffing distance. Friday nights from 5:15–7:30 p.m. host free wine tasting and a chance to perfect synchronized chewing with the aid of live music.
