A Sandwich a Day: The Ariccia at Savenor's Market in Cambridge, MA

In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Savenor's Market recently got rid of their fish counter and replaced it with a made-to-order sandwich area. The Cambridge-based butcher shop specializes in high-quality sustainable meats, as well as some of the weirder stuff you might be looking for, such as bear steaks and crocodile.

All of Savenor's offerings from the sandwich counter sound delicious, but the Ariccia was the stand-out. A roll from Iggy's Bakery is filled with housemade porchetta and pickled fennel then drizzled with local honey, and is finally pressed. The result is porky and salty with a bit of crunch, acidity and sweetness. A really wonderful sandwich.
