Artisan Cheese Gallery:
If you’re in the Valley you must stop by Artisan. The Panini is incredible and the prices are unbeatable. This is a solid sandwich lunch option for a weekday or weekend.
12023 Ventura Boulevard (at Laurel Canyon Boulevard); 818-505-0207.

Il Tramezzino:
If you are in the mood for the city’s best pressed Panini, you have to hit up Il Tram. The classic chicken, sun-dried tomato, and avocado sandwich comes with a generous portion of their pesto aioli, but we always end up wanting more!
454 North Canon Drive (at Santa Monica Boulevard); 310-273-0501.

The Trails Cafe:
Griffith Park is one of our favorite parks in L.A., and a big reason for that is Trail’s Café. After a hike, bike ride, or a day trip to the famed Griffith Park Observatory, there’s nothing better than an Avocado sandwich on their hearty wheat bread, and followed with a slide of apple or rhubarb pie.
2333 Fern Dell Drive (at Los Feliz Boulevard); 323-871-2102.

Another classic, Langer’s has the pastrami market cornered. We always have friends coming into town with Langer’s on their list of must-try foods, and we never hear a disappointed peep!
704 South Alvarado Street (at West 7th Street); 213-483-8050.

Bay Cities Italian Bakery and Deli:
This is the quintessential L.A. Italian marketplace. The line usually snakes around the entire store, for good reason. There is nothing that can hold a candle to their giant and delish sandwiches and we love what they do with their famous bread—whether you get the classic Godmother, a turkey and cheese, or a meatball sub, you will be instantly addicted…we know we are!
1517 Lincoln Boulevard (at Broadway); 310-395-8279.

Joan's On Third:
Grilled cheese on Pan de Mie? Turkey meatloaf with chili aioli? Chicken Milanese with melted provolone? Yes, yes, and YES. Joan’s may be famous for their marketplace and prepared salads and sides, but don’t get sidetracked: When you’re hungry, hungover, or just looking for the yummiest eats between two slices of bread, hit up this classic on 3rd Street.
8350 West 3rd Street (at King's Road); 323-655-2285.

Larchmont Village Wine And Cheese:
Anyone who has lunched here will swear it’s the best sandwich they’ve eaten. We love the mozzarella and precut, and the tuna and turkey are serious contenders. The line is often out the door, but for a sandwich this good, we’ll happily wait for hours.
223 North Larchmont Boulevard (at Beverly Boulevard); 323-856-8699.

8 of 10
Al Gelato:
This hidden L.A. gem has pasta and gelato to rival any authentic Italian eateries in town, but our fave is the sandwiches. We highly recommend getting the chicken Milanese or the meatball sandwich so you can dip it in their legendary red sauce. Plus they're open late, which means more time to chow down.
806 South Robertson Boulevard (Gregory Way); 310-659-8069.

Philippe's French Dip vs. Cole's French Dip:
The French Dip is a pretty controversial subject in foodie circles in L.A.: Both Cole’s and Philippe’s claim to have originated the French Dip, and both are delicious. We happen to like the vibe at Philippe’s better, but when it comes to au-jus-and-meat, these two spots prove that the hype—and the battle for the title of best—will continue to rage on.
Philippe's, 1001 North Alameda Street (at Ord Street); 213-628-3781.
Cole's, 118 East 6th Street (at Main Street); 213-622-4090.

All About The Bread:
Another bread-centric restaurant makes that carb-free L.A. stereotype laughable. Everything on the menu is amazing, but you can also get crafty with the build-your-own options.
7111 Melrose Avenue (at La Brea Avenue); 323-930-8989.
