How one of the East Coast's best submarine sandwiches is made.

The guys at White House are friendly, but they don't suffer fools lightly so you want to know what to order as soon as it's your turn. That's easy, other things are good, but there's truly one reason for your visit: the White House Special: extra Genoa salami, provolone, ham, and capicola.

 

First step? The bread. The folks at White House have been doing this since 1946 — so they know good bread. The soft, chewy rolls have a little pull to them, and are made by Formica Brothers Italian Bakery — no small reason for the shop’s success. “Bread Facts” are proudly displayed around White House: all natural, no fat, no sugar.

 

Bread is sliced on one side, but left firmly attached. Then the insides are hollowed out all along the baguette.
