Parish Café and Bar
Sure, there’s one of these sandwich shops close to the finish line. But avoid the madness by hitting the other location in the South End. The concept here is simplicity through collaboration: showcase the best, unique sandwiches from some of the region’s iconic chefs like Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa and Toro and Tony Maws of Craigie on Main. Without leaving this restaurant, you can take a tour of the area’s best chef talent – served on bread, of course.
