The good people at Serious Eats put together a guide to sandwiches. It’s good and an entertaining read, but what’s missing? Only the best sandwich I’ve reviewed on this site: Chicago’s native Breaded Steak.
I’ve met a handful of native Chicagoans who’ve never heard of Ricobene’s or their specialty sandwiches, so I can’t fault Serious Eats for missing them. But you should not. Plenty of readers have now been to Ricobene’s on my recommendation, and all report experiences as good as mine. This is one of the best sandwiches in the world. If you’re in the Windy City, don’t miss it.
