Celebrate National Sandwich Month in Chicago

Sandwich lovers of the world unite! Who knew that an entire month could be dedicated to sandwiches? Luckily, we are prepared with the inside scoop on the (perhaps lesser-known) holiday. Whether you are a classic Reuben lover, strictly seafood or vegan only, our list of the top sandwiches in Chicago are worth your time (and money).

River Roast {315 N. Lasalle St.}
Treat yourself to River Roast’s take on a Cuban sandwich, “The Cubano,” winner of Restaurant Hospitality’s “Best Sandwiches in America 2015.” Led by the James Beard Award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano and Executive Chef John Hogan, River Roast earns a top spot on our #NationalSandwichMonth roundup. This sandwich layers smoked pork, ham, house made chorizo, Chihuahua, pickle, and horseradish sauce on a freshly baked ciabatta. The decadent sandwich is listed at $12.

Fish Bar {2956 N Sheffield Ave.}
Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood is a part of the thriving restaurant scene with several restaurants including Fish Bar, which have a sandwich worthy of a mention on our #NationalSandwichMonth roundup. Take a trip back to your childhood days and enjoy Chef Michael Kornick’s take on the beloved Crabby Patty. The sandwich is a burger-sized crab cake, fried and garnished with old bay mayo, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a pillow-like, toasted bun. If the chance to live like Spongebob and enjoy a crabby patty does not sound inviting, the cool decor and atmosphere of Fish Bar will. The name says it all, Fish Bar knows seafood — and they know it well.
