A truly great sandwich doesn't just happen by accident. Everything needs to be in the right balance -- the bread, the fillings, the condiments -- with the end result being a work of art... a work of art that you will sloppily devour within minutes like it's your last meal on earth. Here are seven Denver shops that excel at the art of sandwich-making like nobody else:
Chef-owner Mary Nguyen of P17 performs some serious sandwich wizardry at this corner cafe and bakery. Expect to run into unique creations like the Greggers, which contains beef tongue that has been braised for six hours before being paired with garlic puree, tarragon aioli, caramelized onions, and roasted peppers on a hot baguette. Or go for seafood and nab the Jamal, a blackened fish number with citrus tartar sauce, capers, Swiss cheese, coleslaw, avocado, and roasted tomato served hot on ciabatta. Really go with anything. You're in good sandwich making hands here.
