We’ve revolutionized the sandwich here in Westchester. National Sandwich Day is on November 3—celebrate with these out-of-this world-crazy sandwiches.
You don’t need to be a mastermind to figure out The Riddle sandwich from the Avenue Deli in New Rochelle. Chicken cutlet and mac n cheese are sandwiched in between two pieces of buttery, garlicky bread for a sandwich that won’t leave you perplexed.

Feast your eyes on The Harvest Grown-up grilled cheese from Mt. Kisco Diner. This adult version of a kid classic has Swiss and goat cheese, apple slices, spinach, and a fig jam on buttered and toasted to perfection wheat berry bread. It even comes with a cup of creamy roasted tomato soup.

“The Boss” wrap from Gianfranco’s in Bedford Hills lives up to its name. This wrap is stuffed with chicken parmesan and penne alla vodka. Order it for your next party or just for yourself, Gianfranco’s does cater.

If Thanksgiving leftovers are your favorite, try The Gobbler from Carmine’s Italian Deli in Elmsford. Fresh roasted turkey, apple raisin stuffing, cranberry sauce, and turkey gravy come together on any type of bread you want for a sandwich that keeps on giving.

Imagine a sandwich stuffed with almost every Italian meat you can think of. You’re picturing The Godfather sandwich from Anthony’s Deli in Mamaroneck. The Arthur Avenue Italian bread is filled with salami, pepperoni, ham capicola, prosciuttini, mortadella, soppressatta, provolone, lettuce, hot peppers, and oil and vinegar. See if you can finish all of that.
â€‹619 Halstead Avenue, Mamaroneck
The Yama Sandwich from Yamanoya Sushi in Scarsdale is a crazy spin on the typical idea of a sandwich. The sushi twist on an appetizer is filled with lobster salad, spicy tuna, and avocado inside of two pieces of rice “bread” wrapped in soy sushi wrappers. The sandwich is topped with spicy mayo, eel sauce, masago, and scallions.
