The first deli sandwich I ever ordered up was a ham-and-swiss on rye, with lettuce, tomato, mustard and mayo, from on East Avenue with my dad when I was about seven or eight years old. (Great sandwich—I can still taste it.)
That was 30 years ago, when there was an Acro station just down the hill on East Avenue, and Merit Music across the street.
has changed a lot since then. I miss The Best Würst as I miss the Deli-Bake and the reuben sandwich from the old Deli on Elm, though other venerable sandwich shops have endured—including and of course —and New Canaan has added several more great options.
Given all those choices, I'm guessing this week's Readers' Choice on "Favorite Deli in New Canaan" will generate a lot of discussion, respectful debate and, most importantly, reviews and ratings in the New Canaan Patch business directory, so that all future readers can find feedback from local experts and neighbors as they research their next sandwich on-the-go or Super Bowl party fare.
Those ratings and reviews (to post one, just click on a link below), together with poll votes and comments in this thread, will help your New Canaan Patch editorial team declare a "Readers' Choice" winner in the deli category.
