The press conference held at Shapiro's Delicatessen January 4 brought out, for the media, some of the 46 sandwiches created by local eateries.
A great place to highlight great sandwiches, considering the history of the world-famous Indy food stop. Started in 1905, the downtown place has been in the right location for many memorable occasions at Conseco, now Banker's Life Fieldhouse, the Hoosier (aka RCA) Dome, Lucas Oil Stadium, Market Square Arena,, the list goes on...

Now...on to the sandwiches.
All 46 restaurants were not at the press conference but, the ones that were showcased their goods with flair. Heaping platters of sandwiches were pleasing to the eye and palate. Here is a list of my favorites from the eateries in attendance and their offerings.
- Shapiro's-The classic Reuben is well known and loved.
- Schnitzelbank-Bratwurst piled high with mustard and sauerkraut.
- Harry & Izzy's/St. Elmo's-Prime rib with special sauce is hot in temperature and horseradish.
- Historic Steer Inn-Meatball sub with cheese and hearty tomato sauce.
- Goose the Market-Batali on a hard roll is filling with its stacked meats and cheese.
