Best Sandwich - 2012
Phoenix is full of great places to grab a sandwich, but there is only one Pane Bianco. This CenPho sandwich shop has a minimal menu of just three mainstay sandwiches, three salads, and a rotating market sandwich. We've tried them all and never left disappointed. What sets these sandwiches apart from the competition is Bianco's famous bread, made with flour milled on the premises by Hayden Flour Mill (and grown in Arizona — talk about local). The chewy, wood-fired slices always arrive just slightly charred on the edges and make the perfect vehicle for fresh sandwich ingredients. Try Pane's version of a Caprese sandwich, with fresh pulled mozzarella, thick ripe tomatoes, and fresh basil, or the Sopressata, filled with layers of spicy salami and roasted red peppers. And if you happen to be in the area on a Tuesday, stop by for the delicious market combination of Crow's Dairy goat cheese with roasted ripe tomatoes and peppery arugula.
