Lamazou: Superb Sandwiches in Murray Hill

Date May 13, 2008

Looking for a serious Italian hero in Murray Hill? Look no further than Lamazou where authentic Italian meats combine with an expansive and reputable cheese menu to create some amazing sandwiches. The basic sandwich menu is quality, but it’s customizations that will elevate your sandwich to excellence. Read on and find out how to create the delicious sandwich below.

Here’s a link to the sandwiches menu, but trust me when I tell you to go with the #4 Italico (Mortadella, Salami, provolone) and add some lettuce, tomato, roasted red peppers, oil, and balsamic vinegar all on ciabatta. This bread is perfect for this sandwich because its crisp outer crust is strong enough to support all the juicy fillings while the airy, porous insides prevent the oil and vinegar from creating a soggy mess. The standard sandwich is $7.75 and it climbs to a little over $9 once you add the remaining ingredients. It’s well worth it though. Everything is high quality and handled with care. Take a look at the delicious Italian salami below.

All the flavors meld together perfectly. The vinegar balances the sweetness of the roasted red peppers while the spicy salami and mild, porky mortadella combine with the creamy, slightly sharp provolone to create the perfect flavor NYC Food Guy looks for in an Italian hero.

One of my friends stands behind the Chorizo & Manchego cheese on Ciabatta sandwich but the Italico with the added ingredients is so tasty I haven’t strayed from it yet.

    Wow, that really looks like a delicious… I used to be obsessed with Italian combo-type sandwiches and when I finally moved into NYC from the suburbs, I thought I’d be in Italian combo heaven. Unfortunately, I soon realized that it just isn’t healthy to eat them everyday… but of course I will make an exception for this one, as it clearly looks like a worthy sandwich.

    Dude, this was a serious sandwich but stay tuned because I had an even better one today at Faicco’s in the West Village. Italian heroes are awesome. Where’s the best one you’ve had so far?

    the roll looks delicious…..i bet it would be great with only vegetables and oil and vinegar….a veggie hero….

    and as great as Lamazou is, you’re telling us Faicco’s is even better!!
    can’t wait to read on.

    and when you were in the West Village…hope you had the tasty coffee at the Mud truck….. 🙂

    Food for thought,

    It’s a damn good roll, you’re right about that. I don’t know about the veggie hero though, maybe if they were out of cold cuts.

    That’s so funny you mention the Mud Truck. I absolutely grabbed a cup of iced coffee before boarding the subway to work.

    Any good meals on your end lately?

    Good meals on my end?
    I’m on a diet….I read you reviews and wish I could take the food journey you are enjoying.
    I do enjoy Luger’s for burgers and Houstons, too.
    And pizza always pleases.
