Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Gustaio sandwich
Gustaio sandwich
$, Italian, Sandwiches, North Philadelphia
"Peter McAndrews knows how to put a sandwich together. All of the choices at his Paesano's shops are great, but my favorite is the Gustaio, a link of house-made lamb merguez with cherry mostarda, Gorgonzola dolce, and arugula on warm, toasted flatbread."
Meatloaf Parmesan sandwich
Meatloaf Parmesan sandwich
$, Italian, Sandwiches, North Philadelphia
"The sandwiches at Peter McAndrews' shop are so good, I once took my two sous chefs there and we ordered every sandwich on the menu. My favorite is the Meatloaf Parmesan, layered with peppers, red sauce, mozzarella, and sharp Provolone."
Tuscan Tony sandwich
Tuscan Tony sandwich
$, Italian, Sandwiches, North Philadelphia
"Chef Peter McAndrews has a gem in this sandwich shop. Why not wrap an all-beef hot dog with sopressata, place it in a roll slathered with chopped long hots and tangy sharp provolone, then top the whole thing off with Bolognese? Two, please."
Paesano sandwich
$, Italian, Sandwiches, North Philadelphia
"Their signature sandwich is a knockout: chunked up, juicy beef brisket dressed with a spicy horseradish mayo, roasted tomatoes, pepperoncini, and sharp provolone. Then they round the whole thing out with a fried egg. I only eat this thing at night because it knocks me out. Seriously, it will ruin a much valued day off…"
Arista sandwich
$, Italian, Sandwiches, North Philadelphia
"Paesano's is right down the street from Bibou, making it another lunch favorite for my staff and me. The best sandwich there is the Arista, loaded with suckling pig, long hots, broccoli rabe, and sharp Provolone."
