BIlly Club at Chestnut Find Foods and Provisions
Billy Club at Chestnut

Now for an actual, albeit gourmet, club. The Billy Club at Arcadia's all new Chestnut Fine Foods and Provisions is served with turkey that's roasted and sliced in-house plus fresh avocado, heirloom tomatoes, surprisingly sweet maple glazed bacon, and toasted white bread. The price is a bit higher than you might normally pay and the parking situation is hardly better than LGO, but a few bites of the Billy and, we'll admit, all was forgotten.

Where's the Beef at Duck and Decanter
Where's the Beef at Duck and Decanter

Vegetarians, rejoice. Finally, there's a meat-free sandwich that doesn't taste like a sad salad between two slices of bread. Check your carnivorous qualms at the door because the Where's the Beef sandwich at Duck and Decanter can hang with the best of them. This green sandwich is piled high with tomatoes, celery, sprouts, iceberg lettuce, avocados, cucumbers, jicama, mayo, mustard, and pine nuts for an added bit of crunch. It comes with your choice of bread but, in keeping with the healthy theme, we think it pairs best with the multigrain.

Market sandwich at Pane Bianco
Market or caprese sandwich at Pane Bianco

As small as the lunch menu is, we still find ourselves stuck between a ricotta and a hard place when picking out our Pane Bianco sandwich. Fortunately, we've narrowed it down to two sandwiches and one strategy. If the market sandwich of the day happens to be the spicy soppressata with arugula, creamy burrata, and pesto, your lunch order is a no-brainer. However, if this market sandwich is not available, we strongly recommend the Bianco sandwich staple that is the Caprese: local tomato, basil, and housemade mozzarella served on Pane's famous bread.

It seems like the far SE valley can't get any recognition! We have the Olive Mill and The Deli in the Queen Creek area that serve up some fantastic sandwiches.

I've never been to any of these places. Was Romanelli's on Roosevelt at one time?

As good as DeFalco's Italian sandwich is, Romanelli's Italian Deli & Bakery is the best Italian deli around, hands down.
