The Italian Store—Arlington's eminent Italian importer-grocer-pizzeria-deli—has a reputation for good food that takes the form of a half-hour wait in line. As we've reported before, the sandwiches are worth the time (or at least an advance phone call for pickup).

Piled with slices of sweet, fragrant prosciutto and enough thick, creamy hunks of mozz to get you through one of history's lesser sieges, this sandwich may as well be a middle finger to Jared Fogle and the Subway diet. Flip it in health.
