Bay Cities, one of our favorite Italian delis, and the best Italian cold cut sub in town. While you can see the mayo draping over the lettuce on this sandwich, we are staunch believers that the proper way to eat the amazing Godmother - or any Italian sub - is sans mayo or mustard. Come on, you want olive oil and vinegar or some sort of vinaigrette-type dressing. You just do.
This Godmother is the perfect combination of meats (genoa salami, mortadella, coppacola, ham, prosciutto), cheese and "the works" (onions, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, Italian dressing and mild or hot pepper salad), but what really makes it stand above the rest is the bread, because everyone knows a great sandwich is all about the bread. (Coincidentally, All About the Bread's Godfather is pretty good too, but still second to the Godmother). They bake theirs all day long, fresh chewy loaves that are unrivaled when it comes to building a great sub. This is a sandwich worth fighting - bosses, children, traffic - for.
