the earl’s challenge: #8 — romeo [at “Alidoro”]

8 Jul

Alidoro

at the risk of emasculating myself, i confess to recently feeling like lady capulet, looking forlornly into the dark night and searching for a burst of flavor as bright and rejuvenating as the rising sun. at Alidoro, a tiny italian sandwich shop in soho, i found my romeo. a smoked chicken breast sandwich featuring an extraordinary medley of italian flavors–fresh arugula, delicate bel paese cheese, gentle olives, and assertive hot chilis, all dressed with the best olive oil i’ve ever tasted–the romeo is a testament of love to clean, seasonal italian flavors, to a culinary juliet of sorts. the romeo is not only the best chicken ‘wich on the list, but is also the list’s best italian ‘wich, barely edging out torrisi’s chicken parm in my estimation. our stars have crossed, romeo; my search is over.
