The humble sandwich began its career as a place to hide aces, as the Earl of Sandwich was a tremendous cheater at cards. Sample modern sandwich fillers with today's Groupon: $4 gets you $8 worth of sandwiches, salads, and desserts at SubsConscious, with two available locations: Morningside Heights near Columbia University and Hamilton Heights near the City College of New York.
Numerous subs, sandwiches, and wraps fill out the classic menu at SubsConscious, with specialty combinations and breakfast garnishing standby favorites. The Final Exam sub sandwich crams grilled philly steak, american cheese, two eggs, bacon, peppers, and onions into a night of sleepless finger-counting time tests ($8.25), and the photosynthetic plethora of zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, onions, black beans, and pico de gallo of the vegetable burrito sate vegetarian cravings ($6). For early-rising appetites, breakfast options abound, including a broccoli and cheddar cheese omelette served with home fries and toast ($5). Complement any option with a selection of Snapple, Stewart’s sodas, or Naked juices.
Yelpers give SubsConcious an average of three stars:
- The subs are fantastic and the service is quick and nice. – Heather H., 1/28/06
- Great sandwiches in my opinion. Better than anything else I've had in the area. I particularly love anything they make with breaded chicken cutlet--Spice is Nice and Bella Maria are my two personal recommendations. – Jonathon W., 3/19/09
The culinary team at SubsConscious pushes the boundaries of the classic sandwich—their philly-cheesesteak subs, for example, come in 11 different styles. The Double Trouble pairs the grilled steak with turkey and russian dressing, whereas the Nuclear comes brimming with jalapeños and hot sauce for those who like spicy meals or need to unstick their tongues from frozen poles. The team also stuffs 10-inch subs with classic cuban-sandwich fixings or simple deli meats ranging from genoa salami to smoked turkey; these self-contained eats also come in burrito, panini, and bagel form. The shop’s build-your-own salad bar, meanwhile, overflows with extras such as artichoke hearts, beets, and baby shrimp.
