Chicago Magazine's November Issue: 50 Best Sandwiches

Where to find the most savory, saucy, swoonworthy eats between sliced bread

CHICAGO, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- If you've been visiting Chicago's top restaurants recently, you know that the once humble, everyday sandwich has been elevated into something worthy of fine dining. In 50 Best Sandwiches we bring you the most insanely tasty things between sliced bread, ranked in order of deliciousness. Our list includes some of the city's gourmet masterpieces, but it also contains the simple classics done right. We cover everything from cheap to chic to suit every budget and appetite: the top five deli picks, the top five global picks, the top five vegetarian picks, the best sliders, and much more. Plus: What to sip with your sammy, and where to indulge 24/7.

The issue, on newsstands Thursday, also features The Obama Way. Some of President Barack Obama's critics accuse him of being too "Chicago." But after his nearly four years in the White House, one thing is clear: Obama needs to be more Chicago—not just to win reelection on November 6 but also to place his stamp on history. The story lays out the background of two distinct Chicago political traditions—the well-known machine (embodied by the first Mayor Daley) and the idealistic reform (as practiced by the late alderman Leon Despres, among others)—and it explores how Obama does not adhere to either of those traditions, to his possible detriment.
