The Gambino at Cochon Butcher
Donald Link's "swine shop" (part wine bar, part butcher, part sandwich spot) is a meaty addendum to the Cajun chef's pork-centric Cochon (around the corner). You can't go wrong with the always-on-the-menu muffaletta or the pork belly on white bread with cucumber-mint salad and chili-lime aioli, but, on my most recent visit, I opted for the Gambino. Link's take on the classic Italian sub is a serious undertaking with three types of house-cured meats—coppa, cotta, and soppressata—plus arugula and a herby vinaigrette on perfectly crunchy ciabatta.
