We have no idea why this Italian deli flies under the radar, but your days of not knowing about Faicco’s end right now. This place has been open since 1900, is currently operated by the fourth-generation Faicco, and makes what we’re fairly certain is NYC’s best chicken cutlet sandwich. That said, this is a classic Italian deli, which means they have not only every kind of high-quality meat you could imagine, but they also make a fully stacked menu of insanely good sandwiches - you can’t make a wrong choice here. As long as you try the cutlet at least once.
