Muffuletta @ Come Back Inn
The restaurant’s name is memorable, and so is its muffuletta, a major specialty here. The ham, salami, and cheeses are all in the right thin sliced order and generously stratified, with a house-made olive salad and good bread. If you prefer it at room temperature (as I do), say so–they routinely heat the sandwich.
