We – and basically everyone we know – love Guliano’s sandwiches. This lunch restaurant is a mix of Italian and New York flavors and on the menu you will find sandwiches such as Ed’s Pastrami, Bistecca, Vitello Tonnato, Gallo, the GULIANO’s Truffle burger and much more.
Although a lot of meat and cheese is used, there are also very tasty options for vegans and vegetarians.
The truffle mayonnaise is certainly something you don’t want to miss when visiting Guliano; it’s something many people come back for.
