Comment on Maine-Style “Italian” Sandwich by Kirsten Newton.
As a native Vermonter living in Maine, I am disgusted by any Italians I’ve tried in Maine or any other “Grinders” I’ve had here. I grew up in Vermont above a small delicatessen that made them, worked there for my first job, and I can tell you that I haven’t seen anything in Maine even comparable. Check out Gill’s Delicatessen in Rutland, VT or their Facebook page. They opened in the 60s and make their own bread fresh daily. And cabbage! I can’t find any places in Maine that use cabbage!
