New York has cornered the market on plenty of sandwiches—pastrami on rye, everything bagels with lox and a schmear—but a classic hoagie is all Philly. Brotherly Love transplants can get a little taste of home at this FiDi sandwich shop, where they're piling subs high with turkey, roast beef, or the Italian trio of Genoa salami, hot sopressata and coppa. All sammies come on brick oven-baked rolls from Little Italy's Parisi Bakery and are served with the works, including sharp provolone, diced artichoke hearts, pickled hot cherry peppers and Dave's secret-recipe Hoagie Sauce. The 700-square-foot joint—outfitted with distressed-metal counters and 1950s tractor barstools—also offers regional favorites like GuS sodas, Deep River chips and Tastykakes (butterscotch Krimpets, peanut butter Kandy Kakes).
