Because I’m so lucky I find myself working RIGHT ACROSS from Negroni. Something told me that my work would order in a lot from this place (and they do) so I needed only to be a littttle patient before these little pieces of sandwich heaven were introduced into my life. The first Panini I tried (and by far my favorite) was the Mortadella/Soppressata with provolone, arugla, spicy pickled peppers, mayo. I am a horrible, horrible Hindu girl. This Panini made mostly of cured Italian sausage and pork literally melts in your mouth and then kicks you on its way down. Just like most of the food that makes the top of my list, it blends taste, flavor, spice and everything nice. I’ve also had the pleasure of sampling the Roasted Chicken with provolone, arugula and red onion mayo and the Segovia Sausage with fontina, slow roasted onions and sundried tomato pesto. The chicken was definitely great but also probably one of the safer choices on the menu. Not a fan of the sausage one since I turned it over at one point and there was oil just dripping out. 😦
I’ve never actually sat inside Negroni to experience the ambience and service but from my brief walk-in to pick up my food one afternoon it seemed like a great spot for a casual lunch with plenty of seating inside and small quaint patio on the outside.
Second Side Note: because the panini’s come in two halves they are PERFECT for sharing/swapping!
Marinated Mushrooms with goat mozzarella and arugula pesto (okay maybe I’m not SO horrible)
Prosciutto, smoked mozzarella, red onion mayo
