What do New Yorker's call sandwiches

so if you go to NYC and ask a local where a good place to get a sandwich they will tell you go to a grocery store get a loaf of bread and lunchmeat and make it yourself.

heros, hoagies, subs, melts and other products of that nature, if you call them sandwiches referring to thier masterpieces they will probabbly give you a knuckle sandwhiches.

so what do you call that genre of food items without offending them? i have a few questions in mind that targets NYC culinary artists crowd.

I've always referred to them as " Heros" until I went to school in Philly, where they were called " Hoagies". hero on a hero roll, but if sliced bread, then sandwich. At least in my area of NY

Slightly off the subject, this is a photo of Carmen's in the Reading Market in Philadelphia, where we got the best Philly Cheese Steaks. The man in the photo was hilarious with his patter while taking the orders

If it goes between two pieces of bread it's a sandwich, and I don't care where you are from. If that offends someone then they really need to get away from the neighborhood and see more of the world. Just because it's a hero in one locale and a sub in another, and a poor boy in a third, that doesn't mean that they aren't still all sandwiches.

Don't forget "Grinder". We have a large Cuban population, they have added the Cubano and Media Noche.

It's a sandwich. So says the undisputed king of sandwiches in new York. https://www.katzsdelicatessen.com/me...local-delivery

Yes, they're all sandwiches but there are subsets of the sandwich kingdom as well. All heroes, hoagies, subs, etc are sandwiches.

What Andy said.

I'm in NYC all the time and have no problem finding decent sandwiches. And they do call them that.

Just my humble opinion, but a structure that you can't get your mouth around isn't really a sandwich. The whole reason that the sandwich was invented was for portability. If it's not portable or relatively easy to eat, then it's not a "classic" style of sandwich.
