There are few dishes more quintessentially red sauce Italian-American than chicken parmesan. And while ziti and spaghetti and fettuccine and all the other pasta shapes are great, there’s really no better way to eat chicken parmesan than on a roll or stuffed between two slices of bread.
Boston’s got the North End, which features a number of exemplary versions of this perfect marriage of sauce, carbs, fried food, and gooey cheese. It’s the most obvious point of entry for anyone looking for a good chicken parmesan sandwich. But the North End doesn’t hold the patent; there are plenty of great chicken parmesan sandwiches outside of the North End.
Here’s where to eat a dozen of the best in the area.
Please note that a number of Boston-area restaurants have resumed dine-in service, and the level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: For updated information on coronavirus cases in the area, please visit the Massachusetts coronavirus website.
Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
