New Sandwiches on the Scene
Plus: Build Your Own Sandwich
➼ Some traditionalists may argue with the hefty Cuban B ($7.99) served at Savi Urban Market (287 Elizabeth Street; 1388 Dresden Drive). The bread is crustier than Florida paradigms and the fillings include jalapeño, but the mix of roasted pork, ham, cheese, and sinus-clearing mustard satisfies mightily.

➼ Inman Park’s late-night hang Victory Sandwich Bar (280 Elizabeth Street) serves $4 mini sandwiches—filled perhaps with white anchovies, frisée, and freshly made lemon mayo or pot roast with horseradish crème—that fortify while you sip Jack and Coke slushies.
➼ Buford Highway, long a bastion for banh mi (Vietnamese-French subs), has competition. Newcomer Huy’s Sandwiches (6100 Live Oak Parkway, Norcross, 770-666-6762) has drawn food lovers with its frisky banh mi made with bread baked in-house. Dive in with the special combo ($3) stuffed with ham, pâté, pork barbecue, and head cheese.
An example from the deli counter at new charmer Roswell Provisions (955 Canton Street):
A few slices of smoked Gouda: $1.12 ($8 per pound) +
One-fifth pound corned beef: $1.70 ($8.50 per pound) +
One crusty baguette: $2.25 =
$5.07 . . . and you’ll probably have leftovers.
