Award-winning sandwiches in Northern Liberties
Satiate your hunger for great sandwiches with Chef Peter McAndrews award-winning eatery on Girard Avenue.
Looking to add a bit of “gusto” to the ordinary sandwich shop, Chef McAndrews and partner Nathan Baynes transformed a small storefront in Northern Liberties into a destination for distinctive Philly-style sandwiches.
These are not your average hoagies, with succulent selections like the Daddy Wad, a spin on a traditional Italian hoagie with mortadella, Genoa salami, sopressata, cappacolla and prosciutto di Parma and the namesake Paesano, beef brisket topped with roasted tomatoes, pepperincino, sharp provolone and a fried egg.
Bon Appetit has also ranked Paesano’s Artista, topped with whole roasted suckling pig, Italian long hots, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone, among the top three dishes under $10.
Paesano’s original location on Girard Avenue has very limited seating, so prepare to wait for a stool or just place your order to go. For a bit more space, Paesano’s II in the Italian Market (1017 S. 9th Street) has space for approximately 40 people.
