Downtown Charleston has a new, delivery-only sandwich shop: Five Boroughs Deli. The aim is to create delicious New York-style deli sandwiches that you don't have to leave your desk to enjoy. Manager Cam Parker knows there are delivery delis on the peninsula, but his goal is to provide "upscale sandwiches for those with an educated palate and affluent tastes."
Appropriately enough, Parker drew inspiration from his favorite spots in the Big Apple for sandwiches like the Lady Liberty (turkey and swiss with marinated cucumbers and tomatoes, sprouts, and oregano vinaigrette) and the Brooklyn (chicken parm with capicola, ham, arugula, and provolone). All sauces and dressings are made in-house and the bread is fresh from Normandy Farms Artisan Bakery with a selection of white, wheat, marble rye, whole grain, hoagie, or croissant.
And don't bother looking for a storefront. Five Boroughs is a delivery-only operation without extra charges or a minimum order requirement. Parker and team will begin taking your calls for their soft opening this Monday, Oct. 11. They'll be open for business Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Visit fiveboroughsdeli.com or call (843) 720-4900.
