So you've already sampled Chicago's best Italian beefs, eaten a jibaritos and tracked down the often-overlooked sweet steak sandwich. What's next? We decided to look beyond the standard local delicacies and find some of the most creative assemblages of items stuffed between two (or more) slices of bread. After all, you can't beat the handheld convenience of a great sandwich, and plenty of Chicago restaurants, delis and cafes are using the unbiquitous dish as a template for innovation. From a ham and cheese sandwich made with peach preserves to a panini that features jerk-seasoned turkey, these creations offer something unexpected in a familiar package. We even tracked down some amazing vegetarian-friendly options (you won't even miss the meat!). Check out some of the best sandwiches in Chicago that you may not have tried... yet.
