I have discovered that you can get a close approximation of a fully-dressed New Orleans po’ boy in a New York City deli if you say “Gimme a hero with Black Forest ham and Swiss*; lettuce tomato onion pickles; mustard, mayonnaise; salt and pepper.”

This is a prescription for disaster, but my local bagel joint has nailed the order the last half-dozen times. Sometimes you just gotta have a fully-dressed N’Awlins po’ boy, and you don’t have plane fare.

*substitute sliced roast beef and any other kind of cheese, if that’s the po’ boy you prefer
