A sandwich, like a wallet, safely contains its precious contents, fits comfortably into a back pocket, and is rarely found by the police once it's been stolen. Fill up on untraceable victuals with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet sandwiches and groceries at Trinacria.
Generously portioned lunches, freshly made sausages and breads, and a well-edited assortment of groceries have attracted epicurean appetites to Trinacria for more than 100 years. Ambitiously stacked sandwiches run the gamut from a veggie sandwich packed with roasted red peppers and freshly picked mozzarella ($5.99) to a meaty italian cold-cut containing salami, capocolla, proscuittini, and provolone ($3.49). Alternately, Trinacria's delicatessen menu invites food-arrangers to create their own brown-bag battles between cheese and meat, pitting asiago ($7.29/lb.) and american ($4.69/lb.) against pancetta ($7.99/lb.), pepperoni ($4.99/lb.), or the rye-bread school bully. Also doubling as a treasure trove for international groceries, the historic haunt supplies gourmands with succulent wines, decadent desserts, and chocolate-truffle hand grenades for epicurean food fights.
