Big City Subs & Grill is a sandwich shop located in downtown St. Louis.
There is a sandwich board on the north side of the 600 block of Pine Street downtown that advertises a generous portion of the lunch menu for the Edible Difference, whose door is conveniently located right behind the sign. Inside, diners will find a large deli menu behind a lunch counter specializing in sandwiches and salads for workers on the go. In addition to their chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad and club sandwiches, the Edible Difference offers an array of selections for making your own bread, meat and cheese creation. They also serve quiches, chili and soup, including a vegetarian three-bean. Their morning breakfasts include eggs, bagels and muffins. After ordering at the counter, you can take a seat or step to the side and wait, but not too long, for a meal to go. Take note, there is a five-dollar minimum for credit cards.
At Hoagie City Diner, on the corner of Olive and 18th streets, the emphasis is on the diner. Diners can sit at one of the stools at the counter and watch their food cooked up on the grill right in front of them or take a seat at one of the tables. Menu items range from Chinese and Korean food, such as bul go gi, jap chae, bimbap and fried rice, to sizzling hot burgers and gyros. At Hoagie City, breakfast is served all day, featuring traditional American fare including grits, hash browns, omelets and sausage biscuits. Street parking is available along both Olive and 18th streets, and diners can call ahead for takeout orders. Hoagie City accepts cash or credit, but there is a $7.50 minimum on cards. Open for breakfast and lunch, their menu also includes a large selection of submarine-style sandwiches loaded with various sliced meats and cheeses, known in a few places across the country, notably Philadelphia, as hoagies.
Seinfeld fans need no introduction to the first St. Louis branch of this national chain. Founder Al Yeganeh was the inspiration for the sitcom's infamous Soup Nazi -- an association that Yeganeh has disavowed. Still, the décor will remind you of the sensation that episode caused: There are poster-size newspaper articles praising Yeganehs soup; a TV set plays nonstop footage of Yeganeh on the news. That's a lot of hype, and the best soups (almost) justify it. Crab bisque brims with buttery sweet meat. Mulligatawny is complex and peppery, and yankee bean soup with bacon has a wonderfully smoky depth. Combos (soup paired with a salad or half of a sandwich) are a good deal.
Pickles lies in an unassuming storefront in the Central West End close to a multitude of dining options. Diners can build their own sandwich from the different meat, cheese and bread options, including roast beef, ham and Volpi salami. Sides include traditional deli standards such as cole slaw and potato salad.
